Main Slovenian medal hope Fak 23rd in biathlon sprint

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea - The prospects for a Slovenian medal at the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang were diminished significantly after Sunday's men's 10km biathlon sprint event. Jakov Fak, the biggest Slovenian medal hope, finished only in 23rd place, 55.4 seconds behind the new Olympic champion, Germany's Arnd Peiffer. Klemen Bauer finished in 26th, 2.2 seconds behind Fak. Trailing the top three by less than a minute, Fak and Bauer still have chances in Monday's pursuit race. Czech biathlete Michal Krčmar finished second today, 4.4 seconds behind the winner, and Dominik Windisch of Italy was third, 7.7 seconds behind Peiffer
