First biathlete to win the big four in the same Winter Olympic Games

Ole Einar Bjørndalen (Norway) is the first – and, to date, only – biathlete to win the sprint, pursuit, individual and relay events in a single Winter Games, when he competed in the 2002 Salt Lake City Games in Utah, USA. He was denied the big four in the 2005 biathlon World Cup when he finished unplaced in the individual 20 km race.
