PYEONGCHANG, South Korea - Germany's Kati Wilhelm won her second gold medal at the biathlon world championships yesterday, distancing her rivals in the women's individual competition.

Wilhelm handled the windy firing range well to miss only a single shot and finish in 44 minutes and 3.1 seconds, a dominant 39.5 seconds ahead of Slovakia's Teja Gregorin, who also had just one miss on the 15-kilometer (9.5 mile) course. Tora Berger of Norway was third, coming in 46.5 seconds after Wilhelm with one missed target.

It was Wilhelm's third podium in the championships after she silver in the women's pursuit on Sunday.

Andrea Henkel of Germany was punished by her shooting, missing three targets to finished 1:51.1 behind Wilhelm for 10th place. It was Henkel's comeback after she was disqualified from the pursuit for accidentally firing a live round during practice.

Athletes in the individual contest were punished for every missed target by an extra minute added to their race time. Elena Khrustaleva of Kazakhstan and France's Sandrine Bailly shot cleanly but finished sixth and ninth, respectively.

Yesterday's win improved Wilhelm's lead in the overall World Cup standings with 718 points, followed by Sweden's Helena Jonsson and Magdalena Neuner. The championship continues today with the mixed relay.
