Anton Shipulin: “I want to finish the season as close to the top-3 as possible”

Anton Shipulin commented on his performance in the pursuit at the World Cup in Pokljuka, Slovenia:

«It is hard to concentrate after the Olympics. But I have plans. I want to finish the season well. I want to be a close to the top-3 as possible. I will do my best to keep my concentration for the rest of the season.

The wind was gusty today. I am glad I could shoot well. There was no strong wind while I was shooting. I was lucky. I was a bit nervous at the last shooting, but tried to concentrate and do my job. I will keep working on shooting and will try to keep making myself happy with good results.

Tomorrow I will try to have a good race. It will be great to have shooting like today. This victory helped me to improve my self confidence and believe in myself once again.

I want to devote my victory to all women who support us. This is my congratulations with the international women's day.»
