Earlier on Monday, Virolainen’s former personal trainer Leonid Myakishev told that the biathlete could start playing for the Finnish national team. Virolainen finished second in the 15km individual race at the Finnish Summer Biathlon Championships on Sunday.
I am very happy for Dasha. Roma Virolainen, her husband, has Finnish roots, so if she has the opportunity to play, even for the Finnish national team, I will be delighted. Overall, she will enter the Finnish national team, I am 100% sure of that. I don’t know, of course, how it will go in international competitions, but it will be interesting.
I will be happy if the athletes somehow manage to participate in international competitions, even if they do not represent the Russian Federation. They are not traitors to me: the fish seeks where it is deeper, and the man, where he is better. Transitions are already beginning and there will be more, and God himself ordained Virolainen, Guberniev told .
Previously, the IBU suspended Russian and Belarusian athletes from participating in international competitions due to the situation in Ukraine.
