Women's Biathlon Kicked off early this morning

Germany's Laura Dahlmeier came in first in Saturday's race, which combines cross-country skiing and rifle shooting, with a finish time of 21:06.2 and no missed shots. She missed one target and was 2:08 behind Dahlmeier.

The naturalized Korean clocked a time of 24 minutes, 22.6 seconds in the 10km sprint competition at Alpensia Biathlon Centre in PyeongChang, Gangwon Province, some 182 kilometers east of Seoul.

She competed in Sochi in 2014. This is Vitkova's third Olympic Games and second medal.

Dahlmeier gauged the cold and windy conditions perfectly and made all 10 of her shots to give her a comfortable victory in the women's 7.5km sprint.

Since that competition, she has continued to represent Great Britain on the worldwide stage.

Dunklee made USA biathlon history when she landed on the world championship podium a year ago with the silver medal in the mass start.

North Korea invites South president
Kim Yo Jong, sister of North Korean leader Kim Jong Un , arrives at the Incheon International Airport in Incheon, South Korea. Moon joined Kim Yo Jong and other North Korean supporters Saturday in cheering for the team against Switzerland.

But she said the last couple of loops took a toll on her and that her cold "makes a really big difference in an endurance sport like this trying to race through something like that".

SPEEDSKATING: Lim Hyo-jun won the crash-filled men's 1,500-meter final, giving South Korea its first gold medal of the games. This is also her first Olympic medal, coming in her first-ever Olympic event.

Silver received Czech biathlete Michal Krchmar, bronze got the representative of Italy Dominic Vindis.

Aside from Dahlmeier, all eyes were on Slovakia's reigning Olympic champion Anastasia Kuzmina, aiming to become the first biathlete to win the same event at three different editions of the Games.

Dreissigacker had only one penalty with a miss from the standing position and finished with a time of 23:27.2, which was 2:21 behind the victor. Fortunately, there are 10 other events where the United States could conceivably medal in the biathlon in PyeongChang.
