The biathlon world Cup: Ukraine team going for medals on stage in Finland

From 12 to 15 March in Finland will host the eighth stage of the biathlon world Cup. And the way for our national team preliminary stage in the Czech Republic, again we will wait from our sportsmen of medals.

Ukrainian men’s team in the relay race played in the pryma Artem, Sergey Semenov, Ruslan Tkalenko, Dmitry Pidruchny and won second place.

Also Dmitry Pidruchny almost reached for the bronze in the mass start, at the finish he lost the German Arnd Peiffer and became the fourth. Women’s national team Anastasiya Merkushyna, Yuliya Jim, Valya Semerenko, Olena Pidhrushna also finished fourth, behind Germany less than two seconds. Let’s hope that in Finland, our team will add another.

As for the General classification and fight for the “crystal globe”, the women continues to lead Italy’s Dorothea Wierer. Here, it’s like, the sensation we expected. Parimatch analysts do not see a worthy competition Dorothea and gave her the final first place. But in men it intensifies the struggle between Martin Fourcade and Johannes Bø. The Norwegian still giving good odds to the Frenchman when he missed the race in connection with the birth of a child. Martin, who is thinking about retirement, seeks to finally collect all possible trophies, and catch up with him very difficult.
