– I have a lot left to do as a biathlete so it was a bit swaying with the shooter but they felt good to go. It felt fun to be involved, everyone has been so positive and it feels like a good step for the parasport but also for me to be able to get better, says Zebastian Modin to SVT Sport.
Zebastian Modin usually competes in cross-country skiing and in class B1, which is for people with no or almost no vision. In the tracks he has a guide with him and the shooting is also different. He listens to sounds and shoots with a laser at a distance of 10 meters.
– It is a tone that gets louder and louder the closer I get and at the top in the middle, so I put on a pair of headphones when I enter the dike, says Modin.
Can be more biathlon
Modin already has three silver and two bronze medals in cross-country skiing from the Paralympics. But there may be more biathlon for him.
– Length is still what I am best at, but I can hopefully get better at biathlon and even out those, he says.
When asked if you will see more of Modin in such contexts in the future, he answers like this.
– I think so, it was very fun, says Zebastian Modin to SVT Sport.
