Cheney successfully shot a Russian, a German, a Frenchman and a North Korean in the sport that combines cross-country skiing with rifle shooting.
The vice president was penalized for killing his rivals, but his cumulative time -- and their sudden absence from the competition -- was good enough to earn him a place in the finals.
