"I am pleased from the heart for the Russian biathlon"

Four-time Olympic champion Alexander Tikhonov commented on the victory of Russian biathletes in the relay at the World Cup in Oberhof, Germany.

– This success was not a hundred years. In men, I was hoping for a top three, because the composition was good. But Oberhof always surprises – wind, fog. Victory is victory, the flag is raised. This is a success! Our positions return to where they were.

– Everyone had failures: Norway, the Germans, for three years, after my generation left, there were no medals at the world championships. Our biathlon is lifted from its knees. Now there will be stages in Ruhpolding and Anterselva, and then the World Cup. There we will see everything finally. Positive is. Now I am very happy from the heart, – said Tikhonov

For the last time at the World Cup stages, Russian biathletes won the relay race in December 2015 in Hochfilzen. Then Garanichev and Malyshko participated in the race.

Earlier in the afternoon, the women's team of Russia won the relay. Such a golden double in the relay at one stage was last 13 years ago in Hochfilzen.
