“ Our leading biathlonists lag behind a course the competitors very much “At the eighth stage of a World Cup on biathlon in Finland the Russian sportsmen have won two medals: “ silver “ at Timothy Lapshin in sprint and “ bronze “ at Dmitry Malyshko in prosecution race. Succession of events in Kontiolahte was watched by a sports observer “ FM “ Vladimir Osipov.
it is possible to sum already up because the eighth stage is finished. At us on March, 1st starts the World championship on biathlon, and it is possible to understand already that to us from it to wait. As to a female national team, at first about the sad. Even matter is not that any medal is not present here in Kontiolahti. The matter is that our leading biathlonists: Olga Zajtseva, naturally, and Olga Viluhina (at the given stage, at least, the good results, except Olga Zajtsevoj, it shows) lag behind a course the competitors very much.
We can hope for medals, undoubtedly, because Olga Zajtseva shoots is more tremendous. And if zadergajutsja its main opponents: Kajsa Mjakjarjajnen or Magdalena Nojner, Round Berger it quite to herself can, having closed all targets, to be in prizes, and can be even to take “ gold “ but this such 50/ 50. Here for it we will hope, because a course, unfortunately, Olga loses seriously enough, as well as Olga Viluhina. So we will hope and pray, more than anything to us does not remain.
Now about the pleasant: about a remarkable man`s national team. Here, of course, a fantasy that our children show in prosecution race - three persons in ten. And those people about whom we earlier, in general - that, especially also did not hear: Timothy Lapshin, Malyshko, - they in prizes, in general, good fellows, handsome men. Certainly, from men we will wait for very serious results in the World championship.
