Quentin Fillon-Maillet produced a perfect shooting display as he claimed his second biathlon World Cup win in Soldier Hollow in Utah.

The Frenchman finally broke his World Cup duck in Antholz in January, on his 13th podium, and he matched that with victory in the 12.5km pursuit.

Setting off sixth, he overhauled Vetle Sjastad Christiansen, who won the sprint on Friday and took second here.

It was a good weekend for the French with Simon Desthieux coming third, following his second place yesterday.

Johannes Thingnes Boe struggled on the range, incurring five penalties, but was still strong enough to take fourth and extend his overall World Cup lead from seventh-placed Alexandr Loginov.

The World Cup now takes a month-long break with the World Championships set to take place in Ostersund at the start of March.
