Vladimir Barnashov: We decide on the national team for the January World cups on December, 7th
«The Izhevsk Rifle is open tomorrow by relays tomorrow», he comments. «The A-team members also come to Izhevsk to take part. We did an exception just for Anna Bogaliy-Titovets, Olga Zaitseva, Maxim Tchoudov and Yevgeni Ustygov and Anton Shipulin. They have alredy qualified for the January World Cups. We’ll analyze the national team performance in December after the end of the Izhevsk Rifle. On December, 26th Izhevsk is to host the Coaches Council, which will decide on the team’s lists for January World Cups and IBU Cups. Next day we’ll hand in the lists to the RBU Direction for approving. No decisions will be taken before that date. The criteria to enter the teams in January have been announced long ago».
