RUHPOLDING, Germany (AP) -- Tora Berger shot perfectly to anchor Norway to an overwhelming victory in a women's biathlon World Cup relay on Wednesday.

Berger barely paused between firing her final shots in ideal conditions before completing the 4x6-kilometer race in 1 hour, 8 minutes, 13.2 seconds - 54.7 seconds ahead of Russia's Olga Zaitseva, who also shot cleanly.

Veronika Zvaricova led the Czech Republic to third, 1:51.8 behind Norway.
