His contract in the finals was facilitated by the fact that tough teammates Gleb Retivyh and Sergei Ustyugov dropped out of the race already in the batch stage.
– I was surprised that Retivyh and Ustyugov did not make it to the finals. Gleb’s failure, in particular, shocked him. Sergei may have new health problems, but I think Gleb lost due to a tactical error, Sports Express President of the Russian Ski Association, who evaluated the races Jelena Välbe said.
