Biathlete Evgeny Emerkhonov told that he was very pleased with the third place in the individual race of the Alfa-Bank Russian Summer Biathlon Championship.
Kirill Streltsov won the 20-kilometer individual race at the Russian Championships in Tyumen. The athlete achieved a time of 51 minutes 9 seconds, making a mistake. Nikita Porshnev (+2.8) took second place, Evgeniy Emerkhonov (+10.0) took third place.
— On the track, the sensations and well-being today were significantly better than the previous days, especially in the sprint. Today I was preparing to shoot, I of course wanted to shoot zero, but, as usual, it is very difficult to do that in our sport. Apparently, I hesitated a little while lying down, but I am very happy that I passed the last milestone, because in the summer it was very difficult and painstaking work, when I always missed the last shot, and Maxim Gennadievich [Максимов] I scolded him a lot for that (smile). Overall, of course, I’m very happy with this bronze medal, and I probably won’t say that I deserved a gold medal today, this bronze medal is like gold for me.
—Have you ever had a zero on four lines of fire?
– No, that never happened. I hope everything is ahead, because last season there were a lot of races where I shot three zeros, then I shot two misses, or two misses and three zeros, or two zeros, then two misses and a zero… Everyone The time I had these two. We were haunted by failures throughout last season, but today we managed to move on without them.
– Today Shetko lost only 0.4 seconds to you. He finished after you, did you follow his end?
— I didn’t follow because I didn’t know, I just finished and gave interviews. I just looked at the scoreboard and saw who finished how. And of course I was very happy that I overtook Roman Eremin and Igor Shetko by only 0.4 seconds,” Emerkhonov told .
