Two-time bronze medalist biathlete at the 2022 Olympics Alexander Loginov on he said that he is not 100% ready for the summer Russian championship, but the very fact that he can compete is a good sign.
At the Russian Summer Biathlon Championships, held in Tyumen, Loginov won silver in the men’s relay as part of the Tyumen region team. In the sprint race he finished 21st. Earlier, at the stage of the Alfa-Bank Commonwealth Cup in Sochi in early September, the 31-year-old athlete performed only the sprint, where he took 5th place.
“I’m not in the rut I should be in yet.” I am happy that I managed to show a good result. Yes, I wasn’t ready to run the sprint and relay 100%, but I prepare systematically. Winter will be interesting. The very fact that I can train and perform is a good sign for setting dreams for the winter,” Loginov said on the show “Loud”.
Eduard Latypov, three-time bronze medalist at Beijing-2022, was satisfied with his result at the Commonwealth Cup stage in Sochi. He took second place in the pursuit and mass start.
— Are you satisfied with the way the Commonwealth Cup races went? Where Belarusian Anton Smolsky beat everyone.
— The races went well. Considering my preparation, I am satisfied overall. The only thing was that there were some flaws in the filming. In every race I could give Smolsky a fight, but he was better in that regard. Motivation? There have been some exciting runs at the Commonwealth Cup. Competition is intensifying,” Latypov said.
All Russian Championship races are broadcast live on the channel and broadcasts are also available on the matchtv.ru and sportbox.ru websites. The individual races will take place on September 19.
