Not only the beginning was hard, the whole race was very difficult. Honestly, I run down today much harder than yesterday and in the relay. I had some problems with the recovery after the sprint, because yesterday I gave all the power that he had and today it was quite difficult to get together and show the result.

Believed in the runway to the last, because I knew what today’s weather conditions and how hard it was on prisciliano in standing. In the women’s race too, with the shooting today was struggling. Every line, every shot – it was a chance to be higher and higher.

Very nice, and for me it is a great honor that I was able to “steal” from Johannes gold. Let’s see if anyone is still in this championship,” said Pidruchny.
