Anton Shipulin: “I am upset that with two misses I am so far”

Biathlete of the Russian team Anton Shipulin commented on his performance in the sprint at the World Cup in Oberhof:

«As always Oberhof maked athletes happy with the weather. It met us with rain and wind once again. It was uncomfortable to shoot — strong wind gusts during the prone shooting, and it was more or less fine during the standing shooting, as I worked on the last mat. 

I am upset that with two misses I am that far, my competitors also missed a lot. Judging from the track's condition, I can say, that the organizing committee made everything possible. The track is dirty in some places, but we all are in the same conditions. 

I will keep fighting in pursuit. I cannot say I am in bad conditions now. It is somewhere in the middle, but my competitors are better prepared. We will analyze with the coaches where I lost.»
