Russian speed skating champion Vladimir Semirunniy told that despite the ice rink record, he was not happy with his 10km result at the all-around championship in Irkutsk.
Semirunniy set an ice record in the 10,000m all-around classic, but in the overall standings he lost 0.007 points in the title fight against Yegor Yunin.
– I’m not very happy with the result in the 10,000m, because the coach and I had planned to run faster. But after the “one and a half years” it was very difficult, Semirunniy told “”. — I thought that result would be enough for me to win.
– You have a big loss in the team due to illness. Have you passed?
– I was sick on New Year’s Eve, from December 31 to January 3, I have a temperature of 38. We flew to Irkutsk, it was very cold, my blood pressure rose and my head felt very bad. So, just before the Russian Championship, he was no longer sick.
Now we will prepare for the Russian Cup. As Viktor Alexandrovich Sivkov said, this is the main start of the season for us, and we will finally be racing on fast ice in Kolomna. I hope the seconds will be quick. In addition, I will also lead the Youth Spartakiad.
