Peiffer wins individual 20km Biathlon gold
Arnd Peiffer grabbed a gold for Germany at the Biathlon World Championships in Sweden as he prevailed in the men's 20km individual race in impressive style.
The Olympic champion produced a strong performance amid light snow in Ostersund, the first individual triumph for Germany in 20 years.
The 31-year-old took his 14th World Cup medal with a time of 52:42.4, more than a minute ahead of Bulgaria's Vladimir Iliev, who in turn pipped Norway's Tarjei Boe to the silver medal.
The last two individual races of the World Cup take place on Sunday, while the single-mixed relay celebrates its World Cup debut on Thursday.
