Tora Berger didn't have her best day, but after a quick and clean last standing stage, she was headed for gold. The other leaders weren't so lucky: after a disastrous crash, Ann Kristin Flatland broke a binding and Olga Zaitseva lost valuable time. In their places, Krystyna Palka of Poland earned silver and Olena Pidhrushna of Ukraine bronze.


Norway already had a winning women's relay team, but the addition of Ann-Kristin Flatland, a former World Cup winner who took last season off to have a baby, only made them more dominant. The Norwegians collected a 54-second victory over Russia, even though their rivals used only a single spare round to clean their 40 targets. The U.S. was 13th and Canada 14th.
