TV commentator Dmitry Guberniev believes that Russian biathletes should not have chosen Pokljuka, which hosts the 2021 World Cup, as a place to prepare for the tournament.
“Irina Kazakevich is the best in our team, which, by the way, she got into with great difficulty. We asked the coaches questions ... Yes, we had a very bad first half of the World Championship: almost the whole team lost the shooting. Today, for example, Evgenia Pavlova strainedly made three mistakes ... We are not psychologically ready.
The people who followed the preparation of the national team told me that we could not really train here: we were not allowed to the shooting range, because we were preparing the track ... We experienced difficulties with acclimatization. The choice of Pokljuka is a mistake, so you need to ask the coaches. Valery Polkhovsky insisted on Pokljuka - he should be answered. That is life.
On the other hand, perhaps we will pull ourselves together with the last bit of strength and brilliantly carry out the ending of the World Cup. We continue to believe that a miracle will happen. But so far, unfortunately, we are carrying this cart of firewood, ”said Guberniev.
Our biathletes have 0 medals in 5 races at the World Championship. There is at least one reason why everything is so
