Dahlmeier of Germany wins women's biathlon 7.5km sprint at PyeongChang Olympics

Laura Dahlmeier

Susan Dunklee competes in the women's 7.5-kilometer sprint biathlon at the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 on February 10, 2018 in PyeongChang, South Korea.

"I wanted to stay focused for myself and my results". She was one of three in a field of 87 to shoot all 10 of her targets clean.

Coming into these Games, the stars seemed to be aligned: finally, a breakthrough for the Americans at the Olympics in biathlon. The silver medal went to Norway's Marte Olsbu, with one penalty, 24.2 seconds back, while Veronika Vitkova of Czech Republic, also with one penalty, won the bronze medal, 25.8 seconds behind Dahlmeier.

"I told myself it's way better to have a bit of a cold and have this good confident feeling on the shooting range than it is to be on fire on skis and in a shooting funk", she said. This is Vitkova's third Olympic Games and second medal.

"It was really tricky shooting today but I'm happy with my prone", Egan added. By placing in the top 60, Dreissigacker was the lone American to qualify for Monday's 10K pursuit. Susan Dunklee, the U.S.'s best chance at medaling in the 7.5 km sprint, missed five shots - one in the prone position and four while standing - and fell out of medal contention early. "The sprint is so important for the rest of the races here". However, Dunklee finished in 66th place behind two other Americans, Emily Dreissigacker who finished 51st, and Clare Egan, at 61st.

Team officials will also join the athletes, making it a total of 97 out of the 269-member delegation to attend the opening event. The Olympic deal ensures that North Korea is the main topic of discussion in the worldwide media throughout the Olympics.

"It was very frustrating and very disappointing", Dunklee said.

"It's tough", she said afterward. "You really have to have a good sprint to qualify for the pursuit, to qualify for the mass start, so I'm really bummed about that". "In standing, I could feel the wind pushing my barrel around a little bit, but it wasn't anything insane".

"It's going to be a challenge", Dahlmeier said of the conditions.

She said numerous world cup races have more spectators, so the Olympic atmosphere "almost feels a little bit calm, which is kind of nice, honestly". She finished the women's 7.5km sprint in 21 minutes and 32.0 seconds, but did have a penalty on one of the standing targets.

Team USA will look to rebound on Sunday in the men's 10K sprint starting at 6:15 a.m.
