The senior trainer of the female national team of Ukraine Uros Velepec commented on the results of the sprint, held in German Oberhof.

“Of course, the results we are not happy. But it’s still just one race after the New year. In season you can only do two peaks of shape, and now is not the time when you need to show your best scores.

Making plans for the season, we were willing to overlook Oberhof. But here two important races that count towards the Nations Cup, including relay – a rare case in the season to train the team race. Today we got the results – those who can see. But this start, we still consider, as another practice, and therefore there is no panic.

What is Valya Semerenko? Valya does not feel very well, and in this case, the athlete is better not to touch, give it a rest. Risk less than two months before the Olympics makes no sense. Moreover, two days later, relay race, where we expect Here. But until Sunday there is still time, and we’ll choose composition, based on the state of the athletes.

Perhaps someone will miss the pursuit. But we haven’t talked. We have a rule – two or three hours after the race we are discussing. Each of the girls needs to time to sort out his thoughts, to see the race, analyze your feelings, talk to service, with personal trainers… And then in the evening do a meeting where we discuss what happened in the race and what went wrong. Then we’ll discuss the plans for the pursuit,” said Uros Velepec in an interview with the website of the biathlon Federation of Ukraine.

Earlier it was reported that in the sprint in Oberhof Ukrainian women are not placed in the top 20 at the end of the race.
