«We were here last year, and we were able to work out well. I remember my last year start at the World Cup, and I understand, that the perfect training was here. I hope it will be so this year.
In the summer, I didn't have an opportunity to take part in the World Championship, and compare myself to anybody. So, I looking forward to first races. Of course, I've got a highest plans.
Last year, I often was 2nd or 3rd, so my main target this season - will be at the higher step of the podium. I'm happy with my new rifle. I had a lot of time to get along with it, so I believe, it will succeed. Last year my shooting success was on 82,5%, this year I hope to increase it to 90%.»
