Svendsen was a few yards ahead of France's Martin Fourcade down the stretch of the 40-minute race. Right before he crossed the finish line Svendsen held his hands above his head in celebration, allowing Fourcade to almost beat him.

They finished with identical times of 42 minutes, 29.1 seconds. Svendsen won gold after the photo finish showed he finished first by a few feet.
