Fourcade about the victory in the sprint in Ruhpolding
French biathlete Martin Fourcade commented on his victory in the sprint in the fifth stage of the world Cup in Ruhpolding.
“It was a good sprint. During the race I looked at the big scoreboard and saw that she and Emil had shot well. They are serious contenders, but I’m happy that I was able to cope with them. The last shot I got was in the envelope, so I was a little lucky. I had another good start in the world Cup and I want to thank all of my team. I was very nervous before the start because I expect the battle between France and Germany, and this time I won. The conditions were equal for all, but before the end of the race I was not sure in his victory.
We thought that today would be snow, but the big difference between the groups was not. The pursuit race will be exciting. Yes, I have a lead of 20 seconds, but just one mistake can change everything . In any case, I prefer to have the advantage, not to catch someone,” said Fourcade.
