Julia Schwaiger: Zero-zero is always cool.

Press-conference of the medalists of women sprint was held in the media center of Biathlon IBU Cup Final.

1 place – Julia Schwaiger (Austria):

“It’s truly an amazing feeling. I’m really happy about this race. Everything was perfect for me. Zero-zero is always cool. Yesterday there was more wind and it was very difficult for me to shoot clean. But today I felt good at the shooting range and managed to show this result. This season I shoot clean not so often. When I ran fast I can shoot clean so I was confident and knew I could do it”.

2 place – Anastasiia Egorova (Russia):

“I can’t put into words how happy I am about this race. I wasn’t expected to place second today. I felt really good. Coaches prompted me that I’d been going fast and my skies worked jolly fine. Starting the race I didn’t think I could get on the podium. I was focused on my work as much as possible”.

3 place – Irina Uslugina (Russia):

“Sure I was watching Cloe Chevalier finishing. I really didn’t want to placed fourth. To be honest this race was a challenge for me from the very first lap. There was too much tiredness at the end of the season. I thought that I would lose my position even more during the third lap, but somehow I managed to find some strength. Everybody was cheering: coaches and fans. Thanks to them I could place third, their support saved me”.
