Marie-Laure Brunet (born 20 November 1988[1] in Lannemezan, Hautes-Pyrénées) is a retired French biathlete and Olympic athlete who won a bronze medal in the women's pursuit at the 2010 Winter Olympics games of Vancouver.[2]

Brunet made her Biathlon World Cup debut in March 2007 at Kontiolahti, shortly after winning a gold medal in the individual event at the Youth World Championships. During her career she developed a reputation as one of the most accurate shooters on the biathlon circuit. Brunet announced her retirement in June 2014 after suffering health problems, including collapsing during the relay at the 2014 Olympics.[3]
