Shestakova shared what she misses most after switching from cross-country skiing to biathlon

— Changing sports is very difficult. Skier friends, all the faces are familiar to you. And now you go to the biathlon and you don’t know anyone at all, only Anna Grukhvina and Natasha Shevchenko (smiles). And Anya also tells me that I’m the only familiar face.

— Along with the Russian summer biathlon championship, there was also a ski championship. Did you track the results?

— Yes, when we ran the sprint, they had a qualification for the sprint. After the finish I went into the wax and just watched them go by. It’s interesting that there are also guys who I trained with for six years, and I always worry about them, I look at how the guys and girls ran, who qualified.

— At such moments, doesn’t the idea come to your mind that now you would like to be in Malinovka, and not with the Tyumen biathletes?

— On the contrary, what you miss is the atmosphere, the people. It doesn’t exist: why did I come to biathlon? Why is this a thing? There is still filming, training until the evening (laughs). If you miss it, then classic sprints (smiles), Shestakova told .
