KRASNAYA POLYANA, Russia (AP) Weather worries. Track troubles. Ukraine's unity. Domracheva dominating. And Bjoerndalen being brilliant.

Biathlon at the Sochi Olympics had it all.

And, yes, there was doping, too.

    Biathlon at the Sochi Games will feature a familiar face to American fans of the NBA - billionaire Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov - who has been in charge of the sport in his native Russia since 2008. Prokhorov says he will step down if Russia fails to win at least two gold medals and was reportedly unhappy about the Laura' course in Sochi since it was not designed to give Russian athletes an advantage. This will mark the final Games for Norwegian legend Ole Einar Bjorndalen, a six-time gold medalist who will be 40 when the competition begins. The debut of the mixed relay event also adds another medal opportunity in 2014.
