Speed ​​skater Arefiev on Czech Republic’s 500m bronze medal: “The season is a turning point, we need to get out of the hole we were in a year ago”

Winner and winner of the Speed ​​Skating World Cup Artem Arefiev said that for him this season bronze at the Russian Championship over a distance of 500 m is a good result.

Arefiev became third in the 500m at the Russian Championships in individual distances in Irkutsk.

“I can’t say anything remarkable, like seven out of ten other five hundred, it’s a little worse than it could be. Given the form I’m in, the result is natural, and given how I started the season, in general everything is not bad. For me, it’s like a turning point, where I need to get out of the hole I found myself in a year ago. Acclimatization, change of time zone, different ice, not everything is easy, but the leaders raced in the same conditions, so there are no complaints about these factors, although they were accompanied by rather emotional reactions and impulsive; the first night this was not the case. possible to sleep at all. But it’s good that we already have experience. It was more difficult to come to Salt Lake City three days before departure,” Arefiev told .
