Dramatic denouement. The world champion senselessly lost his victory at the Biathlon World Cup

The French athlete was one of the leaders in the sprint

Two-time Olympic and two-time world biathlon champion Quentin Fillon Maillet lost his sprint victory at World Cup 8 as he earned a two-minute penalty. The 31-year-old Frenchman forgot to go to the penalty lap after missing the standing shooting.

Having shot cleanly on the prone, Fillon Maillet was one of the leaders and claimed victory. After the penalty, Kenten took 31st place in the final protocol with a gap of 1:34.8 behind the winner.

Given that biathletes average a 23-second penalty lap, Fillon Maillet would have likely finished first if he hadn't broken the rules.
