Bjorndalen wins record 73rd World Cup race
OSLO, Norway -- Ole Einar Bjorndalen shot clean and won the 12.5-kilometer pursuit race Saturday for his record 73rd World Cup biathlon victory.
The four-time defending champion from Norway finished the race in 31 minutes, 03.06 seconds. It was his 10th win in 15 races this season.
A superb skier, Bjorndalen also won a World Cup cross country race this season and he missed three biathlon events in Finland last week to compete in the Nordic World Ski Championships in Japan.
