Johannes Thingnes Boe led Norway's men to their second IBU Biathlon World Cup relay victory in a row as the quartet topped the podium in the 4x7.5km race in Canada.

The Norwegians bolstered their bid to make it back to back IBU titles as they finished in a time of 1:16:36.6 on the Canmore course, 1:10.4 clear of France in second place.

Russia, Norway's closest challengers at the top of the overall standings, completed the podium as they finished 1:48.4 back from Boe and co.

With just one team race to go in this year's World Cup – the IBU World Championships in Ostersund – Norway are well set to retain their title when competition heads to Sweden in March.
