The men's Russian team and the women's group of Wolfgang Pichler finished their training camp in Font-Romeu, France. The next training camp of the teams of Nikolay Lopukhov and Wolfgang Pichler will take place in Tyumen on August 8–27. The squad of Vladimir Korolkevich has started training in Tyumen on July 29, and will continue until August 13.
«We had a productive training camp in French Font-Romeu. Sportsmen did a good job,» commented a head coach of the national men's team Nikolay Lopukhov. «This was a third training camp this off-season, we worked on endurance and shooting skills. The brothers Fourcade trained in Font-Romeu in parallel with us. This was a useful experience for both — us and them. The joint training sessions inspired sportsmen. Shooting practices that we had with the women's team were also very helpful. During such trainings the sportsmen were working under a psychological pressing — this will help in season. Our team will have a next training camp in Tyumen on August 8–27.»
