"I was confident from morning. There was a lot of electricity in the air...I was so focused. I knew that I just had to listen and follow my body. I watched the Alpine skiing today and saw a countryman win the Gold and thought, 'It is a good day for French skiing today.' It was good day for me."

Tim Burke takes the silver medal, giving the USA only its second World Championships medal ever since Josh Thompson in 1987.

Biathlon: New silver medal for Martin Fourcade

Riders in this news :  Martin FOURCADE

Norway’s Emil Svendsen claimed his second individual Gold medal in the men’s pursuit today with a furious sprint in the final 100 meters to edge France’s Martin Fourcade by one-tenth-of-a-second and 2,4 centimetres. Anton Shipulin finished third.

Despite his three silver medals since the beginning of these World Championships, Martin Fourcade was a little sad to loose his titles of World Champion: "I am disappointed; it was really hard for me to lose today. I felt very good today. When I saw him in the last meters I knew it would be hard to beat him... I will think about this 2.4 cm everyday when I train next summer."
