Biathlon, 7.5 km - boys: Gold triumph of a younger brother
The boys’ contest opened in the morning with 87 participants from 28 countries. Two shooting rounds, one prone and one standing, waited on the track for the athletes. The gold medal in the boys’ category goes to Norway thanks to Johannes Bø, younger brother of the current champion in the senior World Cup, Tarjei Bø. Although Norwegian, Johannes Bø made a total of four mistakes in two shootings, he dominated the skiing tracks, and with a nearly two second lead he collected the gold medal, followed by German, Roman Rees. “My shooting was truly tragic, I could not hit the targets and so I had to put all I had into the last ski lap. I had lost any hope for a medal, let alone a gold,” said the surprised Johannes Bø.
