Elizabeth Eleanor Siddal (25 July 1829 – 11 February 1862) was an English artists' model, poet and artist who was painted and drawn extensively by artists of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood, including William Holman Hunt, Walter Deverell, John Everett Millais (including Millais' 1852 painting Ophelia) and most of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's early paintings of women.

|The women's 10K pursuit was stopped this morning in Östersund, due to unfair conditions from tornado-like winds. The competition jury met shortly after it was stopped and decided to cancel the competition. It will not be rescheduled or rerun at any time.|
This was one of the worst days ever for a pursuit competition, with winds from the right and back of the shooting range blasting the athletes with mini tornadoes of snow from the start. After battling the conditions, for two prone stages and part of the first standing, the competition was stopped and shortly thereafter cancelled.
