ALEXEY VOLKOV: I WELCOME EVERYBODY TO THE CAPITAL OF UGRA!

Biathlete from Ugra Alexey Volkov after his finish in individual race on World Championships in Norway has commented on his performance today and welcomed all sport fans to Khanty-Mansiysk.
— I wanted to participate in one more race of these Championships before individual race today.  It is not always good for an athlete to keep all tension and pressure for one race. It played a low-down trick with me. I made too much fuss on first two shootings and on a track.

I would not say that I’ve lost my good conditions, my technique was more or less good today, but I made a lot of unnecessary moves, wanted to pass all the parts of the distance as soon as possible. But this didn’t bring the result I wanted.

On this occasion I would like to welcome all sport fans to the Russian capital of biathlon! The more so Biathlon World Cup Final will be held in Tyumen next two years, but I think this year Khanty-Mansiysk will make everything possible to conduct these competitions on the highest level.
