Biathlon great Ole Einar Bjoerndalen, a precocious talent as a youngster, is looking to end his Olympic career at 40 with a record medal tally.Norway, with Bjoerndalen in their ranks every time, have won all five world championships and Olympic relays since 2009 .Bjoerndalen, taking part in his sixth games, will draw hope from the fact that a mixed men's and women's relay has been included in Sochi. His attitude is his best asset, according to Liv Grete, a seven-time world champion and three-time Olympic medalist, who was in the same sports school as Bjoerndalen in the early 1990s in Geilo. Hard work quickly paid off for Bjoerndalen, who claimed his first World Cup win in 1996 .Whether Bjoerndalen can beat Daehlie's record will likely depend on whether he can make the relay teams.
