“Bolshunov is still without equal in Russia.  The question is not when he will be beaten, but when he will lose to someone.  » – Panzhinsky

Three-time Olympic cross-country ski champion Alexander Bolshunov beyond competition in Russia, Games silver medalist says Alexander Panzhinsky on .

On Thursday, Bolshunov won the 15km time trial at the Alfa-Bank Russian Cup stage, securing his 13th consecutive victory. The second place was taken by Artem Maltsev (+46.9 seconds), the top three was closed by Savely Korostelev (+53.1).

— Skiers have a saying: “There is no such thing as bad weather, only bad clothing.” » You can take an extra layer of thermal underwear, keep warm and protect your face. The main thing is that there are no consequences. With the current evolution of technology, it’s simple.

Bolshunov destroys all the myths about him, that he can be defeated, that an injury will end his career. This year he dominates. 13 wins out of 13. And everyone is different. Almost everywhere he is head and shoulders stronger. The question is not when he will be beaten, but when he will lose to someone. He is a maximalist and always stays out of competition. It would be interesting to see him now at international level.

I think he had a motivation problem last season. And this season, an injury could also be such a motivation: he wants to move forward, grow further, prove something to himself. He probably aims to win every race this season. The king of skiing makes history. But how interesting it is for everyone else to beat him and become the best after the king, ”Panjinski said on the air of the program “Everyone for the match! “. on .

On Saturday, January 13, at the stage of the Russian Cup in Kazan, sprint races will take place between men and women, qualifying will begin at 10:10 (Moscow time), finals – at 12:40 (Moscow time) . Watch the live broadcast on the channel, matchtv.ru and sportbox.ru.
