Biathlon received the spotlight at China’s 12th National Winter Games on Wednesday. The People’s Liberation Army team performed as predicted with a near clean-sweep of all the gold medals offered in the event.

This was the final day for Biathlon, and 23 biathletes took part in the women’s 12.5km team start. Competitors had complete 5 laps of the 2.5km course, turning their attention toward shooting at targets at the end of each lap.

The PLA’s rising star Tang Jialin already triumphed in the ladies 7.5km and 10km individual pursuit, and looked ready to win her third gold medal of the games. The 20-year-old was pushed by Baishan’s Ma Wei and Harbin’s Song Na, but Tang was the best of the contenders. She scored gold number three in a time of 45 minutes and 27 seconds.
