Darya Domracheva of Belarus has won Winter Olympic gold in the women's biathlon 10K pursuit.

Domracheva, 27, finished in a time of 29 minutes 30.7 seconds, with Norway's Tora Berger 37.6 seconds behind.

The pair were the two leading biathletes in the World Cup standings going into the Games.

Slovenia's Teja Gregorin took bronze, with Anastasiya Kuzmina, who began the race in first place after winning the sprint title, finishing back in sixth.

Domracheva, who won bronze in the individual at the Vancouver Olympics, quickly made up a 32-second deficit at the start and never looked back, shooting an almost perfect 19 out of 20.
