France's Martin Fourcade has won the gold medal in the men's 12.5 km biathlon pursuit. 

Fourcade had a terrific race, coming in at 33:48.6 and with just one penalty loop. He is joined on the podium by countryman Jean Guillaume Beatrix, who takes the bronze medal with a time of 34:12.8. 

The Czech Republic's Ondrej Moravec takes home a silver medal, coming in at 34:02.7 and as one of only three competitors in the race that had no misses on shots. 

Le Guellec flames out, Smith surges

After a very strong start that at one point had him in the overall lead, Canadian Jean-Philippe Le Guellec fell behind to a disappointing 26th place finish. 

However, fellow Canadian Nathan Smith showed signs of promise on Monday, finishing 11th and with a time of 34:37.7 and only one penalty loop. 

Brendan Green finished in 35th place with a time of 36:21.2.
