Marte Olsbu Roeiseland took home the 10km pursuit gold at the Biathlon World Cup in Nove Mesto to continue a dream weekend.

The Norwegian, who finished second in the 7.5km sprint in PyeongChang and gold in Friday's sprint, saw off the challenge from Italy's Dorothea Wierer to finish top of the table for a second time.

"I knew she was hanging like a hatch, so it was hard to know if I was going past, but then suddenly Hanna Oeberg could get up in the back too. I decided to take her in the sprint and luckily it went well," said Roeiseland.

The Italian got unlucky with the wind in at the shooting stage which allowed Roeiseland to take the advantage and complete the 10km pursuit in 29:53.5, 0.2 seconds faster than her closest rival. Sweden's Hanna Oeberg finished in third position, 4.7 seconds later.
