World Championship. Maxim Maksimov — vice-champion of the world!
In the most spectacular day of the early spring Russian team took the first medal on the World Championship in Khanty Mansiysk. Maxim Maksimov was the second in the individual race 40 seconds after Tarjei Boe from Norway and with Christoph Sumann in the back.
Maksim Maksimov: Today I'm ready to go out of my mind! I dedicate this medal to my girlfriend. She told me that will not going to watch the race and I bet she'll get crazy when will now the results. My goal was to go into the race and show everything I'm able to. I was trying to work, make everything good and I'm happy that it turned like that. This season was not the best for me - I had to qualify for the first team, was on the IBU cup. My medal is the result of the work I've done with my coach and my girlfriend's support. Thanks all of them!
