Anastasiya Kuzmina became the first woman in biathlon to successfully defend an Olympic title, by winning gold in the 7.5-kilometer sprint Sunday at the Sochi Games. Competing for Slovakia, the Russian-born Kuzmina shot flawlessly and finished in 21 minutes, 6.8 seconds. Kuzmina won gold in the sprint, and silver in the pursuit in Vancouver four years ago. Her victory in Sochi came one day after her brother, Russian biathlete Anton Shipulin, had lost his chance for a medal in the men’s 10K sprint, after missing the final target.
