RUHPOLDING, Germany (AP) -- Martin Fourcade of France won gold in the 10-kilometer sprint at the biathlon world championships on Saturday, while Magdalena Neuner of Germany defended her sprint title.
Fourcade covered the distance in 24 minutes, 18.6 seconds to finish 15.1 seconds ahead of two-time Olympic champion Emil Hegle Svendsen of Norway. Both missed two targets.
Carl Johan Bergman of Sweden was 17.7 seconds behind Fourcade in third.
Neuner has two medals from two races after helping Germany win the bronze in the opening mixed relay. The two-time Olympic champion, who is retiring at the end of the season, had her final competition at home.
Neuner made no mistakes on the shooting range and covered the 7.5 kilometers in 21:07.0 to claim her 11th goal medal at the world championships.
Darya Domracheva of Belarus took the silver, finishing 15.2 seconds behind Neuner, and Vita Semerenko of Ukraine was 37.6 seconds back for the bronze.
None of the medalists had any misses.
"I had a good feeling from start to finish," Neuner said. "I had no idea how the others were shooting, I just ran my race."
