Ukrainian biathletes claim another gold of IBU Cup
The squad came first in the mixed relay event of the Cup’s Stage 6 in Arber, Germany
Ukraine’s national biathlon team triumphed at the IBU Cup. The mixed relay event of the 6th stage of the competition took place in Arber, Germany.
Nadia Belkina, Yana Bondar, Ruslan Tkalenko and Dmytro Rusynov finished first in the event, outmatching traditionally strong biathletes from Norway, Belarus, Russia and France.
Ukraine proved to be the only team of 15 squads that, under harsh weather conditions, managed to finish the race without penalty laps. That led the yellow blues to the victory, which became the second triumph for Ukraine in the tournament’s mixed relay events.
President Petro Poroshenko congratulated the team on the victory via Facebook. “I congratulate the Ukrainian biathletes on winning gold medals in the mixed relay at the IBU Cup! Glory to Ukraine!”, he wrote.
Previously, Ukraine’s women biathlon team won gold at the IBU Cup stage held in Ruhpolding, Germany.
