Description

The IOC offers the following Video News Release to all news agencies, broadcasters and online news platforms free of charge.

A tremendous fightback on the final Cross Country stage of the Men’s Biathlon Men’s 7.5Km Sprint ensured gold for Poland’s Marcin Zawol.

Up until then Russia’s Dennis Irodov was the comfortable leader. 17-year old Zawol was in the bronze medal position with some steady shooting and evenly paced racing, seven seconds behind the Russian.

But after the second and final shooting stage at the 5km mark, Zawol dramatically cut his rival’s lead and raced clear to victory by 12.6 seconds in 19 mins 23.8 seconds.

Irodov held on for the silver medal. Vegard Thon of Norway won bronze.
