The Russian won the sprint event yesterday with clean shooting and was again in fine form with the rifle missing just one target as he came home in 31 minutes 48.0 seconds.

His closest rival, Ukrainian Serhiy Semenov, matched him on the shooting but couldn’t live with Volkov across the snow, trailing the Russian by 16.2 seconds by the end.

He was however able to hold off the challenge of German Daniel Bohm who had to settle for bronze, a further 2.3 seconds back.
