Harri ELORANTA

Although Harri Eloranta was the best Finnish biathlete in the 1980s and 1990s, surprising everyone by winning a bronze medal at the 1992 Winter Olympics in the 10 km. Before that, his last international tournament medals came during his junior years, when he won golds in 15 km and bronze at 7.5 km at the 1981 World Junior Championships.
