2014 Winter Olympics Erik Lesser

Wins Olympic silver medal

13 Feb, 2014

Lesser wins the Olympic silver medal in the Men’s Biathlon: Individual event. His final time of 49:43.9 minutes is enough to beat out bronze medalist Evgeniy Garanichev, but 12.2 seconds behind gold medalist Martin Fourcade.

I had little hope. But I targeted a top-15 finish so it would be inappropriate not to be happy with silver now.
