Biathlon: Ukrainian Pidhrushna won World Cup bronze
Triumphant return of the captain of Ukrainian team in sport
It was incredible woman sprint race in Ostersund. Till the finish of 94th starting number it was not clear, what will be the situation in the final minutes.
It's nice, that our captain Olena Pidhrushna could distinguish herself again and she shows wonderful results, despite the omission of a season from the first race.
The race began not quite happy for Ukrainian fans - Valentyna Semerenko and Yana Bondar failed the start. If Semerenko's result can be attributed to the recent illness, but what concerns Yana - the questions are still remain. The speed was absent at all.
The results were further improved one by one, firstly, Yulia Dzyma finished near the podium in the intermediate protocol, then Olga Abramova, but the real splash made Olena Pyduhrshna, who showed the same time with Kaisa Mäkäräinen.
In the final circle Pidhrushna could snatch a place on the podium near such the recognized biathletes, as Preyss and Eckhoff.
In the overall standings Ukrainian captain is in the second place.
