Biathlon at the 2014 Winter Olympics – Men's mass start

The men's mass start competition of the Sochi 2014 Olympics was held at Laura Biathlon & Ski Complex.[1] The race was initially scheduled for the evening of 16 February 2014, but it was rescheduled for the following morning due to poor visibility conditions.[2] However, fog caused two additional delays on 17 February 2014, so the race was not run until the afternoon of 18 February.[3]
