Four-time Olympic champion Alexander Tikhonov spoke about the performances of the Russian athletes, for the first time in history to win medals at the Olympics. The words of 71-year-old specialist leads sport24.ru.
“To call the speech of the men in Korea? Very bad. And the fault is the leadership — Alexander Mikhailovich (Kravtsov — approx. “Of the tape.ru”) has trusted the wrong people,” — said Tikhonov.
“I, as first Vice-President of the International biathlon Union (IBU), attended all the Cups. Now no one is responsible for anything, not interfering, having behind shoulders a wide experience. This is our tragedy. And Alexander trusted people, but not those. Though he was warned. They (management team — approx. “Of the tape.ru”) had to answer,” added Soviet biathlete.
At the Olympics in Pyeongchang in biathlon Russia was represented by Tatiana Akimova, Uliana Kaisheva, Matvey Eliseev and Anton Babikov. The best result for the Russians at the Games became 15-th place Akimova in the individual race.
The Olympics will last until February 25.
