Two-time Olympic champion Dmitry Vasiliev criticized the Russian women’s biathlon team for 11th place in the relay at the World Championships in Pokljuka.
“Catastrophe. It’s a disaster. I don’t understand how this is possible. Of course, it is useless to change coaches during the season. But from the first day I was skeptical about the appointment of Shashilov and Kaminsky. How can you train a team like that? They don’t run at all, “Vasiliev quotes “Championship”.
According to him, he also does not understand by what principle the coaching staff determined the squads for different races. The expert believes that Tatyana Akimova needed to sprint to get in shape for the relay.
“It’s just stupidity, that’s why today she was driving with all her strength, she could not shoot. I’m just amazed. Shashilov is 100% to blame for the World Championship. This is only his responsibility. He was developing a strategy. It’s only his fault, ”added Vasiliev.
The Russian team consisting of Evgenia Pavlova, Tatyana Akimova, Svetlana Mironova and Ulyana Kaisheva took 11th place, repeating their worst result at the World Cup in history. The Norwegian national team won.
Earlier, Mironova said that after moving to a lower altitude, her health is in order.
