"Lowell was really just glowingly happy," said Adirondack Daily Enterprise reporter Chris Knight, who is also working in Sochi as a correspondent for NCPR.

Bailey finished roughly 1:25 behind the gold medal winner, Martin Fourcade of France. The veteran biathlete from Lake Placid also shot well, notching just one penalty.

The strong showing on Thursday is a boost for US biathlon, which had been struggling through these games, with off performances on the men's and women's side.

Bailey has two more shots at a medal, in a mass-start race and a relay competition.

We'll have more on the biathlon race tomorrow morning during the 8 O'clock Hour. Meanwhile, Find the latest results and new pictures from Sochi at our North Country at Sochi page and much more on Twitter at #NCPROlympics.
