Women’s Biathlon Pursuit upset win

Another upset in Biathlon. Ninth place starter comes from behind to win Women's Pursuit.

Marksmanship, or lack thereof, hurt the US team badly. Susan Dunklee noted that she had a momentary lapse of concentration going into the fourth shoot and then missed three targets for a total of four. It would have been close but that may have cost her the Bronze. The medalists each missed only one target.

There are a number of lessons to be learned from the Olympians. They didn't get where they are by whistling Dixie.

Exactly what the old guy who got me into IPSC many years ago said...

once the government controls "our" guns we might produce an Olympic medal winner shooter too.
