A biathlon 15km race in the “sitting” category finished at Winter Paralympic Games 2014 in Sochi.
The fifth gold medal was won by the Russian Roman Petushkov, who shot without a miss at all four stages and was the fastest.
The whole podium was Russian. The second was Gregory Murygin, who had two penalties, and was two minutes and 4.9 seconds behind Petushkov.
The second "bronze" at these Games was won by the representative of Bashkortostan Alexander Davidovich. He shot out "clean" but he was slower than Murygin by 20 seconds.
Thus, Bashkir medal count was replenished with the sixth medal — two "gold" , one "silver" and three "bronze" (two of them — by Davidovich).
The Russian team is leading at home Paralympics 2014 winning more than 50 medals.
