It was Domracheva's third career Olympic medal. She also won bronze in the individual race in Vancouver four years ago.

Selina Gasparin of Switzerland shot cleanly and finished 1:15.7 behind to take silver. Nadezhda Skardino of Belarus also avoided mistakes and finished 1:38.2 behind in third.

Pre-race favorite Tora Berger, the 2010 Olympic champion, was already out of contention after missing three targets in her first two shootings. The Norwegian finished almost four minutes off the lead.
