A record-breaking day at the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi Wednesday as a Norwegian biathlete became the most decorated Winter Olympian ever with 13 medals.

Norway won the first-ever Olympic mixed ralay in the biathlon as Ole Einar Bjoerndalen broke the record he shared with cross-country skiing great Bjoern Daehlie. 

Bjoerndalen also matched his fellow Norwegian's record of eight gold medals.  

Bjoerndalen can win another medal in the final men's biathlon event of the Sochi Games, the 4x7.5K relay on Saturday.

Tora Berger faulted twice, but Tiril Eckhoff, Bjoerndalen and Emil Hegle Svendsen all shot cleanly for Norway. They finished in 1 hour, 9 minutes, 17.0 seconds.

Czech Republic was 32.6 second behind to win silver, and Italy came in 58.2 seconds behind for bronze.
