Pavel Rostovtsev: “Olga Vilukhina proves that she is one of the world biathlon's leaders”

The coach of the women's squad Pavel Rostovtsev commented on the team's results at the world cup in Anterselva:

«Olga Vilukhina had a great race today. With her results she proves that she is one of the leaders of the world biathlon. Svetlana Sleptsova with one penalty loop also can be satisfied with her result.

We are a little bit upset with Olga Zaytseva's prone shooting. She was the only one sportsman having the gusty wind at the prone shooting. She shot very close, she lacked just one correction to shoot clean. We were not lucky here.

It hard for me to say how the mountains influence the girls' performance. We have not discussed they conditions after the finish yet. We will discuss all these without emotions at the meeting in the evening.

The performance today was not as great as the sprint in Nove Mesto. But we realize that it is impossible to be always high. We had a lot of positive things today. There are no reasons to be pessimistic. We will prepare for the next race.»
