Olga Podchufarova: I Struggled Up to Last Meters in Pursuit

Russian biathlete Olga Podchufarova told that after the last shooting she struggled on the track up to the last meters, but could do nothing with herself and lost three positions in the end. 

Olga Podchufarova with one miss at the last shooting finished 11th, after 5th start position in the Saturdays pursuit at World Cup 4 in Ruhpolding.  

“After the last shooting I was 8th, but 11th at the finish. I’ve struggled up to the last meters of the track, but it didn’t work. I could do nothing with myself. I know, that if I shot clean, I could have been closer to the podium.

We had to run 10K today, but it was a feeling, that it was all 20K. The track was really, really soft. But I should say that the conditions were the same for everyone. Honestly, it was too tough for me after the third lap”, — said Podchufarova.
