Although the U.S. did not medal in the biathlon this year, we still have a great deal to celebrate. Lowell Bailey of Lake Placid, New York recorded the best individual finish on February 13 for the Men’s Individual 20 km event.

Missing only one shot out of twenty and finishing the course in 50:57.4 (less than a minute and a half behind the gold medalist, Fourcade and around fifty seconds behind the bronze medalist, Garanichev), Bailey finished eighth, making the US, while not one of the medalists, certainly a noteworthy competitor this year.

Norway, the powerful biathlon force of a country, now claims who some are calling the greatest Olympian ever. Ole Einar Bjoerndalen earned his record 13th Winter Olympic medal in Sochi, and has cemented his position in Olympic history. View video of his record-setting performance here.
