Svetlana Ishmuratova from Russia has won the Olympic gold in a 15-kilometer single biathlon race on Monday
The 15-kilometer race was a really daunting task, Russia’s Svetlana Ishmouratova who won the Olympic gold medal in the women's individual biathlon event on Monday said. “There was no place where to take a breath,” she said. “It was an incessant string of steep slopes, sharp turns and down-runs,” Ishmouratova said. “Shooting was also a hard task,” she said. “Two weeks ago I had flu. I barely had the time to recover,” she said. Russian chief coach Valery Polkhovsky said “Ishmouratova and Olga Pylyova (Olympic silver medallist) ran brilliantly.” “Their end goal was to win. Albina Akhatova was just a little bit less accurate in shooting,” he said. “In general, this race was psychologically exhausting,” Polkhovsky said. “The rivals could not cope with it as well, and they missed many more targets than the Russian girls, who, by the way, hardly recovered from flu before the Olympics-2006 in Turin,” he said. “My great thanks to the doctors who have helped the team achieve the peak form,” Polkhovsky said.
