“Today was tough. The track is such that it is difficult to say – went skiing or not. I too rode on the highway with someone to assess correctly. The sighting was very difficult because of the fog. In the race already there was no fog, but the weather changes prevented. Regarding prosecution – the goal is always the race is on: to fight, to show a good result. Tomorrow I will try as enough forces,” – said Dmitry Pidruchny in the comments biathlon.com.ua.
The worst result showed Brendan. He made two mistakes and was 40th at the finish.
“Very upset at the failures in the rack. Any error in shooting – is a minus to the overall result. On the second turn got into the gusty wind was quite strong on the left side. Even today a lot depended on luck: someone was prevented by the fog and some wind . Prone I was able to work clean, but the strut failed,” summed up Brendan.
