Biathlon contender, Bjorn Svensen, accidentally fired his rifle into a crowd of spectators attending the XC event. Giving the last leg of the course his all, Svensen, nearing a gold medal, reached the last target with fogged goggles. Upon mounting the shooting platform he aimed his weapon and into the crowd before officials were able to turn him around and point him toward the actual target range.
The the bullet perforated the cup of a Venti hot-chocolate just purchased by Morton Glesch for which he paid twenty eight bucks for at a Starbucks concession located just behind the bleachers. Uninjured, though now nearly broke, Glesch charged the athlete but was held back by the OC security staff.
