    Disl, Germans lead the way

     NOZAWA ONSEN, Japan (AP) -- When the snow and fog cleared at the biathlon course, Ursula Disl had forged a place in history.
     Disl won three medals at the Nagano Games, including a gold in the 30-kilometer relay. That gave the German star six medals in three games, the most ever in the sport.

    Germany wins men's relay

     NOZAWA ONSEN, Japan (AP) -- Alone they faltered. Together they reasserted Grman biathlon power as the shoot-and-ski sport climaxed today at the Olympic games with Germany capturing the 30-kilometer relay.
     Never higher than sixth in individual events at Nagano, the Germans took their third straight Olympic relay gold. Snapping back from a 14-year slump, Norway won the silver and Germany's archrival, Russia, secured a bronze.
     Racing with three of the same biathletes who won gold at Lillehammer four years ago, the Germans finished in 1 hour, 21 minutes, 36.2 seconds. Norway was clocked at 1:21:56.3 and Russia at 1:22.19.3.

    Germans win women's 30K relay

     NOZAWA ONSEN, Japan (AP) -- Ursula Disl overcame slippery fingers and poor aim to lead Germany to a vengeful victory Thursday in the women's 30-kilometer relay and become the most successful biathlete in Olympic history.
     It was not easy for Disl to win her first gold medal and sixth overall. In fact, she almost cost her team any chance of victory when she dropped a ski pole and then needed five extra shots in the leadoff leg.
