Commentator for Dmitry Guberniev said that the prologues organized by the Russian Biathlon Union (RBU) did not receive due attention without proper broadcasting.
The prologue is a pre-departure competition, organized for the first time by the SBR before the main competition program of the Alfa-Bank Commonwealth Cup, Championship and Cup of Russia in eight cities of the country. The first stage took place on Tuesday in Khanty-Mansiysk, the biathletes took part in the 100 meter ski event with elimination. Won the men’s final Alexander Kornev in women – Anna Grukhvina .
— If I were SBR, I would first find an agreement with television, then I would film the prologue, not the other way around. It’s clear that it was shown somewhere, we filmed everything in batches, but we haven’t paid enough attention to these competitions yet. Overall, the idea is good. It was clear that after our hundred-meter race, which was a huge success thanks to Dima Zanin and the channel, the SBR would not stand still. They have accepted the challenge and are trying to write their own story. Well done: there is a prize pool, the athletes are interested, so let them run,” Guberniev told .
At each individual stage, the winners of the competition receive 50, 40 and 30 thousand rubles and points for ranking, respectively. The winning team will receive 1 million rubles at the end of the season.
Watch the first races of the Alfa-Bank Russian Cup stage in Khanty-Mansiysk on Friday, December 1 live on the channel, as well as on the matchtv.ru and sportbox.ru websites.
