Russian athletes forced to compete as neutrals won four more gold medals as the Para Nordic World Cup in Canmore continued today with sprint biathlon action.

The country remains suspended by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) due to the doping crisis embroiling the nation.

An update by the IPC is due to be made on December 22 in London, with Russia's place at the Pyeongchang 2018 Paralympic Games under threat.

Sporting prowess in the country has been highlighted with their performance in Canmore, however, with all four winners today also clinching golds on the first day of biathlon on December 14.

He was timed at 22:25.1 and missed one target in his victory.

South Korea's Eui Hyun Sin was second in 23:22.3, despite shooting clean, as Alexsandr Davidovich, another neutral Russian, came third in 23:31.7 with one target missed.

Ekaterina Rumyantseva was another Russian to win a fifth title in Canmore as neutrals swept the podium in the women's standings.

She missed one target to win in 16:44.4, clinching a narrow victory over Anna Milenina who also missed just once and ended in 16:51.1.

Natalia Bratiuk took bronze in 18:07.8 but shot clean.
