OLE Einar björndalen commented on the rejection of performances in the European championship.

Norwegian biathlete OLE Einar Bjoerndalen told why he refused to participate in the European championship and survived the decision.

“It was harder than I thought, psychologically and practically. There are days when I couldn’t force myself to do something.

I didn’t have the energy to prepare. In such a situation I have never been. Complexity is added also interest from the press.

When the head and the body is not right, does not make sense to compete. I trained, but there were days when I thought it was unreasonable. The other days I trained a little bit.

Anyway, I had training for pre-intensive session. And in this case it is not necessary to run the championship. In spite of everything, this is an international tournament and I never played in tournaments without good preparation. So my solution was to give place to others,” Bjoerndalen said in an interview with Norwegian newspaper VG.

Earlier it was reported that Bjoerndalen will not attend the Olympic games in the national team of Norway, but will go there to support Darya Domracheva.
