SummaryEdit

Frank Ullrich was the two-time defending World champion, and defending Olympic silver medalist, but his ski pace in Sarajevo was a couple of minutes behind the top competitors, and he ended up 5th. The world champion in the 10 km sprint, Eirik Kvalfoss, had the fastest ski time, but missed five shots, ending up with bronze. The gold went to West Germany's Peter Angerer, who had the best shooting record in the competition, and also the second-fastest ski time, leaving him almost a minute-and-a-half clear of his closest pursuer, East German Frank-Peter Roetsch.
