What made Bjoerndalen famous

The career of the Norwegian legend can truly be called a great one, because he gave biathlon 25 years of his life. Moreover, despite the deterioration of results in recent seasons, he still remained in the elite and sometimes competed with younger sportsmen. He confidently performed at both the World Cup stages and world championships. Talking about his main achievements, they include:

  • twenty-time World Championship winner;
  • eight-time Olympic Champion;
  • six-time winner of the Big Crystal Globe.

Naturally, we are only talking about gold medals. In his best years, other medals were considered a defeat for him. As a result, it is not surprising that he decided to marry another legendary biathlon, the Belarusian Daria Domracheva.

What Fourcade answered him

From the very beginning of his career, it was obvious that Martin Fourcade is a more talented sportsman than his older brother, Simon. From the very first seasons he began to dominate the World Cup, preventing his competitors from approaching the throne of the best athlete of the season. Azscore allows you to be the first to get information on more than 30 sports. A very useful app for those who cannot watch matches of their favourite teams live. As for Fourcade’s achievements, they include:

  • 5 victories at the Olympic Games;
  • 13 victories at the World Championships;
  • 7 large Crystal Globes (all of them won in a row);
  • 185 podiums in 320 races.

Talking about the Olympic Games and the World Championships, it may seem that the Frenchman was weaker than the Norwegian. However, having studied the Azscore statistics, you will come to a different conclusion. He was not ready to be the second, and therefore when another Norwegian, Johannes Bo, began to dominate him, he decided it was time to end his career.
