Hakkinen finished 14th in the 12.5-kilometer pursuit, moving up from a starting position of 16th. He had just two misses on the range in the shooting-intensive race, finishing in 35 minutes, 36.7 seconds, 1:52.9 behind winner Ole Einar Bjoerndalen of Norway.

Also for the United States, Tim Burke was 11th, Lowell Bailey was 12th and Russell Currier was 23rd.

“It was a really good week for the US team at the Kontiolahti World Cup, where we really reached a new consistent level of performance,” Hakkinen wrote on his website, jayhakkinen.com.
