Olga Vilukhina: “I am trying to improve as soon as possible”

Biathlete of the Russian team Olga Vilukhina commented on her performance in pursuit at the World Cup in Oberhof:

«After the prone shooting, when I left 23rd with one penalty loop I thought I needed to win back. I was able to work with a cool head the next shootings. I was lucky to have wind blowing from the right side at the standing shooting, as my competitors covered me. 

Today I started the race in a good mood, and will do the same in the mass start. I will try to improve as soon as possible — there is not much time left before the main start of the season. I am trying, my dear country! I will do everything to be closer, to be on the podium.»
