Irina Starykh: I still do not believe that at the finish I could win back such a big lag
Biathlete from Tyumen Irina Starykh commented on her victory in the women's sprint at the Summer Biathlon Russian Championships and Cup in Sochi.
«To be honest, we did not prepare for this start in some special way,» says Starykh.
I still do not believe that I could win back those second and win. I do not think that I am in perfect conditions now. Early in the summer I had an injury and missed some training period. Maybe this is reason why I have some kind of lightness that contributed to my victory. The track in Sochi is very difficult. First of all because of the altitude, and secondly because of the steep turns and uphills. However, I enjoyed racing today.»
