World champion Vasily Rochev spoke about the tricks of Norwegian skiers during the World Championships in Oberstdorf, Germany. His words are quoted by “Championship.com”.
Rochev said that the Norwegians took the entire podium in the sprint race due to the fact that they showed athletic cunning, saving strength during the race. “We sat on our heels. And Sasha Bolshunov spent all the races under his own dictation. Plus, Sasha had a cold. All this gave such a result, ”he counted, adding that the Norwegians seemed to him fresh in the sprint.
