In this event, the top 60 finishers in the 7.5 kilometer sprint can compete in the pursuit. The sprint winner starts the race and the racer's final deficit behind sprint winner corresponds to their starting deficit in the pursuit. Competitors race over five loops of a 2 kilometer skiing course, shooting twenty times after each loop. 10 shots are prone and 10 shots are standing. Each miss requires a competitor to ski a 150-meter penalty loop.

The defending world champion in this event, Helena Jonsson, is favored to win the gold medal.

Jonsson enters the Olympics with odds of 3/1 according to online sports book Brobury Sports. Other short odds to win are Svetlana Sleptsova (5/1), Magdalena Neuner (5/1), and Anna Carin Olofsson (10/1).

Jonsson hails from Sweden, and she won the 2009 world championship in a time of 34:12.3, which was 18 seconds ahead of her nearest competitor. The 2009 title was her first gold medal on the world state in this event.

Sleptsova, who hails from Russia, was part of the 2009 world championship relay team, but she has yet to win an individual medal on the world stage.

Neuner, who competes for Germany, was the youngest to ever win the overall world cup, as she did in 2008 at the age of 21. She won the gold in the 2007 world championships for the pursuit, but finished sixth in 2008 and 11th in 2009.

Olofsson, who represents Sweden, had medaled once in the pursuit, taking bronze in the 2007 world championships. She won the gold in the 2006 Olympics for the mass start event.

The 2010 Winter Olympics take place from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada beginning Friday, Feb. 12. and concluding Sunday, Feb. 28. For complete odds on the biathlon women’s 10km pursuit, see below.
