Triple Olympic medalist Edward Latypov On , he said that he encountered difficulties during the super sprint of the Alfa-Bank Russian Biathlon Championship in Tchaikovsky.

On Thursday, Latypov took second place in the super sprint, losing 3.3 seconds to Alexander Bektuganov. Alexander Kornev finished third. Latypov missed seven shots on four shooting ranges.

– It’s not very good that there were seven failures. The first lie down didn’t go well, there was no advantage, I was catching up. He walked without slowing down. I understood that I had to shoot well, but it was windy so I had to take risks. I shot like I shot, but I had to sweat on the last lap.

There is an unpleasant and dense wind here. Given the nature of the race, I couldn’t rest. You breathe for half a second and choke. I had to try to shoot quickly and fight the wind in one go. I think the race was not easy for everyone today,” Latypov said on .
