One of the leaders of our team, Dmitry Pidruchny, commented on today’s speech of the Ukrainians in the relay.
“Yesterday it was a run down, but did not go shooting today hard to run down, but good shot. The first half was still OK, and then legs and back began to ache. Back all stopped working. A little more, and Landertinger could skip ahead. The body is a bit loaded, and it shows. This stage was not prepared, Antholz for us as the last training session before the world Cup. And it was pretty good training. But the body is very difficult, and I still run the mass-start.
Very pleased that the Nations Cup we beat the Czechs. And fourth places in the relay – a very worthy. The last two years only in Oberhof we were fifth and above 7-8 places we didn’t go there ever. And now, not just the fourth occupied and are fighting for third. Lacks quite a bit: today speed, the last time any one fallback”, – lamented the bad luck Pidruchny.
Recall that in today’s relay, the Ukrainians took the fourth place, conceding 13 seconds Russian team. Tomorrow men awaiting a mass start. Ukraine in this discipline will be presented by Dmitry Pidruchny, Sergey Semenov and Vladimir Semenovym. The start of the race at 12.00 Kyiv time.
