The Sweden blended relay at the Biathlon World Cup in Oberon may have brought a technical deficiency to a medal.
After the race it was found that the screws that hold the rifle on the shaft were loose, wrote Swedish Olympic champ Sebastian Samuelson after the race on his Instagram account.
As the final runner of the Scandinavians, Samuelson at the shooting variety in the lying stop made three charge rounds, he then needed all three after loaders.
This is among the hardest experiences in my profession up until now, continued the 25-year-old.
I am obviously extremely disappointed.
The Swedes were on the gold medal in the line-up of Hanna and Elvira Berg, Martin Ponsiluoma and Samuelson.
The Northern European fell back to ninth location through Samuelson’s error at the shooting variety.
Gold went to Norway, behind it Italy and France protected silver and bronze.
The German team around Vanessa Vogt, Denise Herrmann-Wick, Benedict Doll and Roman Sees did not leave sixth location.
