With another impressive shooting performance, Marte Olsbu Røiseland secured her third gold medal in the Beijing Olympics in the women’s 10km pursuit.

The Swedish athlete Elvira Öberg took the silver medal, and Norway’s Tiril Eckhoff won the bronze.

Røiseland hit her first five shots. As Reuters reports, a miss by Öberg allowed Dorothea Wierer to slide into second place early on, but she was unable to exploit a miss by Røiseland at the third shoot, missing two of her own five shots to fall more than 90 seconds behind on the fourth lap.

Røiseland flashed off her last five shots in perfect fashion before skiing away from the range with confidence.

Røiseland has won medals in all races she has competed in the Beijing Games so far.
