In biathlon Laura Dahlmeier (GER)** started out with two Olympic victories in sprint and pursuit in the races in PyeongChang and went on to take bronze in the individual event. "I used to dream of winning at the Olympics when I was a little girl and would practice celebrating victory on my bunk bed. And now something really big has come true," said the double Olympic champion. With gold in the mass start and silver in both pursuit and individual, Anastasiya Kuzmina's (SVK)** name likewise appeared on the medal lists three times. After some difficulties to begin with on the shooting range, Darya Domracheva (BLR)** appeared to be unleashed after her silver medal in the mass start and celebrated the surprising gold medal with her team colleagues Nadezhda Skardino**, Iryna Kryuko* and Dzinara Alimbekava** (all BLR) in the relay with sheer joy. Hanna Öberg (SWE)** provided another much deserved surprise with her Olympic victory in the individual which was followed by a silver medal in the relay.
In the men's events it was Johannes Thingnes Boe (NOR)** who went into the races with outstanding form. The Norwegian clinched victory in the individual event and went on to win silver in both the mixed relay and the men's relay. With gold at the beginning in the sprint and bronze in the relay, Arnd Peiffer (GER)* likewise played a considerable part in the positive medal results of the Fischer athletes.
Some 250 athletes competed in the Nordic disciplines in PyeongChang with Fischer. A total of 89 medals (35 x gold, 33 x silver and 21 x bronze) went to athletes of the Fischer Race Family.
