Biathlon: Gust wins all sprints this season

Johannes Thingnes Böh wrote a piece of biathlon history in Oslo. The 29-year-old Norwegian also triumphed in the 10km race in Holmenkollen. Bö won all seven World Cup races for the season. No athlete has ever done that before. He also won the gold medal at the World Championships that year. Despite a shooting foul and a penalty loop, Bo held a nearly 24-second lead over Swede’s Martin Poncelloma. The Swiss clearly missed out on the top spots. Sebastian Stalder finished 31st with a shooting error, 1:45 behind, Niklas Hartwig had a clean shot but finished 32nd, just behind compatriot, Seraphine Festner was 41st, Joscha Burkhalter 78th and Dagan Danuser 89th.
