The biathlete also shared that after the race she burst into tears, and one of the members of the Russian team calmed her down. “For me it was a stab in the heart, I let the whole team down. At some point, a representative of the Russian team approached me, took out a napkin and silently wiped my tears. Thanks to him, I managed to get together and go out to reporters, ”she said.
