Another Gold Medal winning Winter Olympics Venus today, with Belarus biathlete Darya Domracheva, as suggested by one of our readers. Twenty seven year old Darya won the bronze in the Vancouver individual in 2010 but picked up the gold in the pursuit in Sochi on Tuesday.
Darya was asked to carry the Belarus flag at the opening ceremony but her coach advised against it, obviously worried that even the tiniest strain could put her aim off.
In the 10km event she dominated from the start and despite missing the last target, leading to a 250m penalty loop, she still won by over 37 seconds.
The slightly bizarre skiing and shooting sport of biathlon is a real test for bodily control. Not only do you have to have a long distance runner's stamina to handle the skiing part you then have to calm yourself down for the shooting stage. If you miss a target (there are twenty in the 10km pursuit) you have to ski a penalty loop for each one.
Born in Minsk during Soviet days she originally competed, as a cross-country skier, for Russia before switching her allegiance to Belarus in 2004.
She won golds at the World Championships in 2012 and 2013 having made her senior debut in the Belarus team in 2006. She was ranked number two in the 2012-2013 World Cup.
All the running and cycling she does in off season training, let alone the skiing, has given her a splendidly toned figure.
