The season 2011/2012 has already been a history. The Russian team showed an improvement of its results not only in the men’s team but also in the women’s team. The Russian ladies finished at the podium 11 times, comparing with 7 podiums in the last season. Both of the teams won the Nation cups. The men’s team had the last victory in 2007, women’s – in 2005.
The only negative moment was the team’s performance at the world championship in Ruhpolding, where our sportsmen won only two bronze medals. Olga Vilukhina and Anton Shipulin were the Bronze medalists of the pursuit races. “Of course I know our goals for the next season. We will need to defend out title in the Nation cup and have a better performance in the world championship. We will have two key points in the next season – a world cup in Sochi and a world championship in Nove Mesto,” commented a head coach of the women’s team Wolfgang Pichler.
