Russian men's biathlon team finished training in Tyumen

Head coach of the Russian men's biathlon team Nikolay Lopukhov summarized the results of the training camp in Tyumen.

«In Tyumen we had a great training camp with huge loads and basic work,» comments Lopukhov. «Our team participated in the Open Championships of Tyumen region. Such competition practice is useful for sportsmen. Some athletes performed better, some of them worse. They all train and work hard. For example, Malyshko have not always had a good shape in summer. In Tyumen, he performed quite well, yet there is no reason to make far-reaching conclusions. 

The main thing is that the boys draw right conclusions. Of course, we talk through and analyze mistakes. However, sportsmen should be able to analyze their performance. In Tyumen, we had great training conditions. All our requests were satisfied. Zhemchuzhina Sibiri is a wonderful biathlon complex. We plan to come back in October.

As for the nearest future, on September 4 we will gather in Moscow for medical examination, and then will travel to Sochi for the next training camp. In Sochi, the men's team will participate in two races in the framework of Russian championships and Russian cup.»
