Dmitry Pidruchny commented on the retirement of Martin Fourcade.

The captain of the men’s team of Ukraine biathlon Dmitry Pidruchny spoke about retirement Martin Fourcade.

According to the Ukrainian, he looked up to the Frenchman and considers it a unique contestant.

“I approached him, congratulated and thanked for the year that I was able to fight it, to speak together. Not to say that he was an idol for me, but I looked up to him. It was very nice to run with such a top athlete. He is very unique and biathlete, which happen, perhaps, once a decade.

It’s nice that I had to deal with it. It is a pity that he decided to do so to retire, because this year he is really one of the few who forced the fight Johannes. Fillon-maillet have tried, but still – and He was the strongest competitor. Will see what happens,” said Pidruchny.

Earlier it was reported that Fourcade won the last race in career.
