Exclusive Interview for Biathlon News International, by Raniya Kutumova, Russia

RK: Evgeny, how did you decide to skip from cross-country skiing to biathlon?

 

EG: When I was in the junior ski team, I often met the biathlon coach Vladimir Alikin (former A- team main coach – R.K.) and we talked a lot about skipping to biathlon. We went to do shooting exercises together, and he proposed that I to go to the Tyumen biathlon team ...

Wind protection

Posted on February 11, 2012 at 10:50 PM Comments comments (0)

I am heading to Antarctica soon to run a marathon and noticed the biathlon athletes wearing 'tape' on their faces to protect against very cold temperatures.


Can anyone tell me what this tape is? Is it specially designed for the cold? Is it a specialised brand? where can I find some? or maybe it is just strapping tape?


Thanks

Davide

Interview with Viktoria Semerenko by Maria Osolodkina, Translated by Anastasiya Mironets

Posted on June 25, 2011 at 4:16 PM Comments comments (0)

Vita is an excellent half of one whole Ukrainian miracle named Semerenko. They are always together, supporting each other in tough moments and rejoicing when they win. Vita is very similar to Valya by appearance, but the sisters are completely different. They are united by great diligence, perseverance and love for biathlon. At first glance, Vita seemed to be a somewhat reserved and uncommunicative person. But when we got to know each other better, she appeared to be as easy-going as her sist...

Well, as most of you know we had a trainingcamp in Ramsau, in lovely Austria! In the program there was skiing on the glaciär/aufm Gletscher at the altitude of 2600 above the sea level! quite high, but stunning views and good tracks!:)) This year there was much more snow than the previous year, no black snow, only a bit icy tracks early in the morning!
