Ole Einar Bjoerndalen is already tied for the most medals of any Winter Olympian with 12 overall thanks to his gold in the 10km sprint. He looks to break that record on Monday with the 12.5km pursuit, which begins at 10 a.m. ET.


Bjoerndalen has seven gold, four silver and one bronze Olympic medals since 1994. He’ll look to turn things around from Vancouver; he missed some final shots to fall short of gaining a 12km pursuit medal back in 2010.

The 40-year-old should face plenty of competition, however, so we’ll see if he makes a little more history on Monday.
