Svetlana Sleptsova: “I showed the result I was ready for”

Biathlete of the Russian team Svetlana Sleptsova commented on her performance in the relay at the World Cup in Annecy, France:

«I did not expect my competitors to be so fast. I set myself up for the fight and showed the result I was ready for. It was hard to have no starts for the two weeks and move to the World Cup from the IBU Cup. I was nervous to run the first leg. I failed psychologically. I think that my functional form is not bad, I just need more starts. The track is interesting in Annecy, there is no place for rest. You need to work during the whole race.»
