So what will Jean-Philippe Le Guellec do for an encore? The Shannon, Quebec native has become the first Canadian to reach the podium at a men's biathlon World Cup, winning gold.
Le Guellec finished the 10-kilometre sprint in 25 minutes 10.4 seconds after shooting clean. The previous best men's World Cup result by a Canadian was a sixth-place finish by Glen Rupertus in 1993.
Le Guellec will start first in the pursuit race today.
