Ole Einar Bjoerndalen equals Winter Olympic record

Rosa Khutor, Russia: Norwegian biathlete Ole Einar Bjoerndalen on Saturday equalled the record for Winter Olympic medals after victory in the sprint in Sochi took him to 12.

The 40-year-old went level with compatriot Bjorn Daehlie, who also gathered 12 medals in his Olympic cross country career.

Bjoerndalen finished ahead of Austria’s Dominik Landertinger and Jaroslav Soukup of the Czech Republic.

It was Bjoerndalen’s seventh Olympic gold to add to his four silver and one bronze.
