Emerkhonov told what advice coach Istomin gave him before the individual race at the Chechen Summer Biathlon Championships

Biathlete Evgeny Emerkhonov told that other athletes supported him after he failed in the sprint at the Russian Summer Championships, and also spoke of a motivating dialogue with coach Artem Istomin.

On Tuesday, Emerkhonov became third in the 20 km race at the Russian Summer Biathlon Championships in Tyumen. He made a mistake and lost 10 seconds to the winner Kirill Streltsov. On Saturday, Emerkhonov took 53rd place in the sprint, and a day later, as a member of the first team of the Volga Federal District, he took 10th place in the men’s relay.

— Before the individual race, you conducted a mini-survey https://t.me/biathlon_match/6809 with your colleagues, who suggested what you should do after 53rd place. Did it help you relax emotionally?

— Probably, yes, it helped me to unload mentally, because everyone supported me so much, many told me to stop after that (smiles), they joked. But in general, a lot of people said words of support, and that probably inspired me.

Yesterday Artyom Istomin gave me advice: “Rest today.” I replied: “I rested today. ” And he says: “And tomorrow – to win.” I say: “All that remains is to win (smile). » It almost didn’t work. It would be very, it seems to me, unexpected if I won today, but I ran well today.

— What are your next projects to prepare for the season?

— From October 8, we will have a training camp in Aldan, at the Seminsky pass, then in Khanty-Mansiysk for the Russian Cup. “Everything is going according to plan,” Emerkhonov told .
