Domracheva takes gold in women’s 10km pursuit

11/02/2014

Darya Domracheva of Belarus clinched gold in the women’s 10km biathlon pursuit on Tuesday afternoon, winning her first Olympic title.

The Belarusian’s time of 29:30.7 saw her cross the line 37.6 seconds ahead of Norway’s Tora Berger, with Slovenian Teja Gregorin finishing third in 30:12.7.

Domracheva hit all targets in the two prone shoots and the first standing, only missing one of five in the final standing.

It was a first Olympic gold for Domracheva, who was world champion in the pursuit two years ago and took bronze in the individual event – won by Berger - at Vancouver 2010.

Gregorin, a relative veteran at 33, produced a career highlight performance to win her first Olympic medal and Slovenia’s third at Sochi 2014.
