Biography

Tora BERGER

Since striking gold in the 15km individual event at Vancouver 2010, Tora Berger has gone on to become the most successful female biathlete in Norwegian history.

V for victory in Vancouver

Tora Berger made a little piece of history when she won the 15km individual event at Vancouver 2010, becoming Norway’s first Olympic women’s biathlon champion and securing the country’s 100th Olympic Winter Games title in the process. The host nation of the 1952 and 1994 Winter Games, Norway is the first country to achieve that milestone.

Though the first of Berger’s many biathlon triumphs had come back in the 2007 IBU World Cup, but her victory in Vancouver added a new dimension to her career and heralded the start of a period of domination that would last all the way to Sochi 2014.

On top of the world

It was during the 2010/11 season that the Ringerike-born biathlete began to enjoy sustained success in the sprint, pursuit, individual and mass start events. The younger sister of biathlete and cross-country skier Lars Berger, she raised her game even higher the following season to win the 12.5km mass start and 15km individual titles at the IBU Biathlon World Championships in Ruhpolding (GER).
