The leader of Russian national team on biathlon believes that the leaders of the world Cup will pass to the Olympics.

Russian biathlete Anton Shipulin has shared his expectations from the Olympic games in 2018, said Martin Fourcade and Johannes boe won’t have such an advantage over others that have them now.

“I think that Fourcade and boe will give us a chance in the sense that they themselves are unlikely to be able to keep such a great form that you show now. We, however, have to approach the Games in a much better condition than now. So the forces have to trim.

I perfectly understand that we are not in Korea and that Games still need to survive.

Of course, the work that we do is aimed first of all to play well, not here in Korea, but when I go to start, think only about what to show the result we need here and now. This is important even for myself to feel what I’m capable of,” – said Shipulin in an interview
