Anastasiya Kuzmina and Martin Fourcade extended their overall biathlon World Cup leads after winning pursuit races on Saturday in Oberhof, Germany.


Two-time Olympic champion Kuzmina, who won the women's 7.5-kilometre sprint on Thursday, followed up by winning the 10-kilometre pursuit in 30 minutes, 49.5 seconds despite two missed targets. The Slovak beat Italy's Dorothea Wierer by 1:04.4 and Ukraine's Vita Semerenko by 1:10.2. Both Wierer and Semerenko shot cleanly.
