“We had to make friends with the wind” – biathlete Kornev about his victory in the mass start in the Chechen Republic

Biathlete Alexander Kornev On he told how he managed to cope with shooting in difficult weather conditions during the mass start of the Alfa-Bank Russian Championship in Tchaikovsky.

Kornev won the mass start with two penalties over four shooting stages, posting a time of 40 minutes 57.2 seconds. Eduard Latypov finished second, 15.4 seconds behind, and Alexander Povarnitsyn (+24.8 seconds) rounded out the top three.

— How did you manage to shoot without errors on the third and fourth lines?

— I set a goal before every race that I can’t pass over my head. I discussed with Maxim Gennadievich (Maksimov, shooting coach) that you just need to do the work that you are prepared for and ready for. Nothing more is required.

We played in such windy weather more than once, I understood that we had to work on every plan, make friends with the wind. The way he blew, the way I behaved.

I expected it to be colder, but the weather turned out to be quite nice; the fact that we all worked closely together contributed to extra warmth in the body,” Kornev said on .

From January 16 to 22, the fourth stage of the Alfa-Bank Russian Biathlon Cup will be held in Izhevsk. Watch live broadcasts of races from the stages of the Alfa-Bank Russian Biathlon Cup on the channel, as well as on the websites matchtv.ru and sportbox.ru.
