“My nails were peeling off, they were completely black” – Loginov about running in the cold

World champion Alexander Loginov said he had frozen toes due to running in freezing weather.

On Thursday, a super sprint took place at the Alfa-Bank Russian Championship in Tchaikovsky; the temperature in the stadium at that time was -19 degrees Celsius. Loginov did not participate in the race.

“My toes are frozen.” There was also a period with my hands where the skin on my knuckles cracked from the cold; no glove could save me, but now I managed to find a cream that I really like. I didn’t think it could help me this much. But my toenails were peeling off and completely black.

So now, even if I’m outside in -15 degrees in my boots, my feet freeze within 40 minutes, no matter what precautions I take. That’s why I ran one of the races in Ufa with shoe covers. And he fled to Khanty with shoe covers. I know that there is a risk of frostbite on the fingers, even during a very short race,” Loginov said according to RT.

On Friday, team races will take place at the Russian Championship. Watch the live broadcast of the women’s start from 8:35 a.m. (Moscow time) on and Match! Arena”, men – from 11:35 a.m. You can also follow the competitions on the matchtv.ru and sportbox.ru websites.
