Tuesday marked two bronze medals for the Olympic athletes of Russia in ski sprint. First third in the final race came Julia belorusova, and then with the same result, the men finished Alexander Bolshunov. To comment on our successes “MK” asked the famous skier, the Olympic champion‑2010 in the individual sprint Nikita Kryukov (pictured):
— Just super! The huge success of our skiing. Took two medals — a big-a big feast! Belorukova and Julia, and Alexander Bolshunov just great. I want to congratulate all those involved: parents, friends, coaches and, of course, the President of Federation of ski races of Russia Elena V. Vyalbe. Many congratulations, very happy! And particularly pleased that the medals won in bitter struggle, and even “silver”.
Only the photo finish could determine that the “silver” went to the Italian Pellegrino, and bronze went to Russian Alexander Bolshunov.
— In General, the results of the races naturally?
— Yeah. And the victory of Clabo Norwegian, and Swede Nilsson natural. And indeed we can say, global surprises was not. The best was really strong at the moment, unless, of course, not counting the suspended athletes from Russia.
