Evgeny Garanichev made some truly «impressive performances» this past weekend. And if the 75th place in the individual race can still be called a failure, then the 113th place in the sprint is a benefit, and perhaps even a record.
Matvey Eliseev wasn't so memorable, he even earned points in the individual race, but he also leaves the World Cup due to his low speed. Matvey isn't ready yet, and he himself admits it and asks to let him go for a break.
Their places in the team will be taken by Alexander Povarnitsyn, who was supposed to start from the very beginning, as well as Vasiliy Tomshin, who showed the 5th, 3rd and 1st results in the IBU Cup.
