Alexander Tikhonov: Fight for bronze in the relay in Beijing? What a bronze – you have to fight for gold!

– One of the leaders of our biathlon team, Eduard Latypov, was infected with covid. I just began to reach the peak of my form, and now preparations for the Olympics have been disrupted.
– It’s okay – it will be more recent for the Games.

– Because of this, Latypov, as reported, will miss another stage of the World Cup in Ruhpolding, and Yuri Kaminsky’s group did not plan to go to the last stage before the 2022 Games in Antholz …
– We have to go to Beijing and win there.

– Maybe it’s still worth going to the stage in Antholz before the Olympics?
– It would be desirable. Descend from the mountains, re-acclimatize, then acclimatize normally – and forward.

– I do not mean at the training camp, but to perform at the World Cup stage in Antholz …
– I don’t know, these are their questions. We prepared for the 1968 Olympics in Grenoble without any ammunition at all – we forgot at home. And nothing – we prepared well.

– One leader dropped out for a while, but another appeared – Sasha Loginov.
Well done, Sasha! May God grant him to keep his shape, not to go overboard with the preparation. On freshness, on a normal recovery process – and forward to the Olympics.

– Babikov and Serokhvostov pulled themselves up. We have a relay team emerging. We can even compete for bronze at the Olympics.
– What a bronze! We need to fight for gold.

– Let’s be realistic: when there are Norwegians, what kind of gold?
– We also had a lot of Norwegians, we did not pay attention to them.

– And the girls pulled themselves up. It seems that some prospects for the Olympics are looming.
– The main thing is that they understood that they can win, be in the prizes. Confidence appeared.
