Ole Einar Bjørndalen - most Olympic medals Winter games

Biathlon at the 1964 Winter Olympics consisted of one biathlon event - 14 nations / 51 participants

A miss was a 2 min time penalty ... target scorecards were checked manually 😖 ..

The best speed at a distance (1:19:37.9) was shown by the famous three-time Olympic champion in cross-country skiing, 39-year-old Finn Veikko Hakulinen, however, 6 misses threw the oldest participant in the race to 15th place.

Privalov was credited with 1 miss, and he remained in third place after the Norwegian Olav Jordet, but after manually checking the targets (there were no mechanical targets then), Privalov was credited with a hit and he rose to second place.
