Biathlonist Albina Ahatova can leave big-time sports

On the one hand, after a birth of the son who was born on December, 24th, 2006, Albina feels perfectly and is in the good form. In March under the direction of the father she has started to train gradually: ran cross-countries, skied, shot at a dash. But with another - even for the sake of new victories on a ski track young mum is not ready to leave for long time the child.

- Yes, it would be desirable to run about still. For this purpose at me is both forces, and mood, - Albina Ahatova admitted interview to one of the Russian news agencies. - However, in that case many problems at once lean. I, for example, do not represent, as it is possible to leave the son to someone on education and not to see it for nine months in a year. Possibilities to take it with themselves on gathering and the more so on competitions as a part of a national team, most likely, will not be. In this situation, probably, a unique exit - to leave on self-preparation. But I do not know, whether the federation will allow. Besides for this purpose it is necessary to find sponsors who would help me with preparation.

results of trainer`s council of the Union of biathlonists of Russia also can affect Albina`s decision (SBR). The meeting will pass 24 - on April, 25th in the Tula area, and on it structures of national teams of Russia of all age for a season 2007 - in particular, will be confirmed 2008.
