Senior coach of the Russian cross-country ski team Egor Sorine told that coaches did not expect great results from the Olympic champion Yulia Stupak during the 10-kilometer mass start at the stage of the Alfa-Bank Russian Cup in Tyumen, but they will consider why the athlete did not fight for a place in the top 30 strongest.

On Sunday, Stupak took 43rd place in the 10-kilometer race from the general start. Veronica Stepanova won.

“I haven’t spoken to Stupak yet, but apparently she is now ready for such a result.” We didn’t expect anything special or great results from her. We will find out why she didn’t fight for twenty or thirty years. Maybe it was difficult for her or she was in such a mood,” Sorin told .

The next departure of skiers will be the Spartakiad of the Strongest, which will be held from February 9 to 18 in five regions of Russia: Chelyabinsk, Sverdlovsk and Tyumen regions, Krasnodar and Krasnoyarsk territories. Competitions will take place in 16 Olympic sports.

On February 9, from 08:35 (Moscow time), watch live broadcast of the Spartakiad cross-country skiing competitions on the channel, matchtv.ru and sportbox.ru sites.
