KHANTY-MANSIYSK, Russia (AP) -- Slovenia's Jakov Fak won the final race of the men's World Cup biathlon season Sunday, taking victory in a 15-kilometer mass start event in Russia.

Fak was the only athlete in the 30-man field to make all his 20 shots and finished in a time of 38 minutes 9.8 seconds, 10.3 seconds ahead of second-placed Russian Anton Shipulin.

The bronze went to Norway's Tarjei Boe, 1.2 seconds further back.

A day after securing his fourth straight overall World Cup title, France's Martin Fourcade could only manage 20th place.

The women's season ends later Sunday with a 12.5 k mass start, with Belarus' Darya Domracheva on the verge of taking her first overall World Cup title.
