Sochi 2014: Domracheva wins biathlon women’s 12.5km mass start

Darya Domracheva (Belarus) wins biathlon women’s 12.5km mass start, the third gold medal at the Sochi Olympics. Domracheva, 27, crosed the finishing line in 35 minutes 25.6 seconds. Trailing Darya Domracheva by 20.2 seconds in silver medal-winning position was Gabriela Soukalova of the Czech Republic, while Norway’s Tiril Eckhoff (+27.3) took bronze.
Dutch athlete Jorien ter Mors smashed the Olympic record to take women’s 1,500m gold as the Netherlands swept the medals, tightening their grip on the speed skating competition in Sochi, the official website of the competition reports. Ter Mors – racing in the ninth pair – went almost 4.5sec quicker than then race leader Olga Fatkulina of Russia, setting a mark of 1min 53.51sec that not even her Dutch rivals could match. Defending champion Ireen Wust, who has already won the 3,000m and taken silver in the 1,000m, came second, 0.58sec behind ter Mors while Lotte van Beek (1:54.54) took bronze.
