Senior coach of the Russian cross-country ski team Egor Sorine told that he had a serious conversation with Anastasia Faleeva after the prologue of the classic-style sprint of the fifth stage of the Alfa-Bank Russian Cup.

On Saturday, Faleeva won the sprint in classic style at the fifth stage of the Alfa-Bank Russian Cup in Kazan. According to the results of the prologue, she took third place.

— Results of the women’s sprint on the case. Olga Sergeeva was surprised, she took second place. For her, this is at least the best result this season, and she has not been so brilliant in the past. Ekaterina Evtyagina also made it into the top 3 of the Russian Cup stages for the first time in her career. This is a great result for her. Sergeeva and Evtyagina defeated Alena Baranova, who seemed a clear favorite against their background. Alain was not enough in the final.

— Are you happy with Nastya Faleeva?

“Before the season, she was considered a favorite in the sprint, especially in the classic. I’m happy with the victory, but not happy with his prologue. As she is a good sprinter, she should also win prologues. We had a serious discussion after the prologue, I told her she couldn’t run like that. Technically she couldn’t get out of it, there was unnecessary noise. And in the quarterfinals, Faleeva did not have the best run in terms of passing technique. But then she pulled herself together, well done. In the semifinals, and especially in the final, Anastasia showed that she is currently the leader,” Sorin told .
