Our glorified fellow countryman and biathlonist Sergey Chepikova in due time disqualified on some times in a year. The unruly experimenter of that only did not get up with the weapon. It posesses idea to carry a rifle a trunk downwards. Except original carrying of a rifle our double olympic champion liked to chat on a boundary. Trainers tell, that at times during the most responsible moment it could take an interest easy at them, for example, in the program of evening actions. Our well-known fellow countryman-biathlonist Sergey Chepikov by results of performances at World Cup stages, probably, could not provide to itself a place in a national command and has not gone on the World championship to Italy. Remained the house, it has taken part in cross-country «the Ski track of Russia-2007», passed on February, 11th on range «Старатель» near Nizhni Tagil. In prize-winners Sergey has not got, but attention from journalists and fans used absolutely not smaller, and can, even big, than winners. As soon as it has crossed finishing line, at once has got to a dense ring wishing to communicate to it. Sportsmen of different age in eager rivalry stretched it the numbers and skis and asked to undersign on them. It is curious, that among them there were many children though when it gained the loudest victories, many of them did not exist yet.
And journalists extorted from the veteran, whether it is going to finish sports career? I too have set to the deserved biathlonist some questions on this theme.
– Sergey, you strongly was upset, what you did not take on the World championship to Italy?
– Yes is not present, it is normal vital evolution. I consider, that in the World championship the most worthy, most prepared sportsmen should act. I with pleasure support our children and I rejoice to their successes.
– Whether it is possible to speak about end of yours биатлонной open-cast mines?
– Probably, I have already close approached to it. But in a life there is everyone, maybe, also i will take part.
– Whom you of see further?
– The trainer, to tell the truth, I would not wish to be. If would began to train, only the smallest that long travelling was not. Perhaps, work on any sports objects, in a sports infrastructure. In general, any activity close to sports.
– Perhaps it is necessary to go in the footsteps of Фетисова, let us assume, in scales of Sverdlovsk area?
– All can happen, but while such offers did not arrive. And most to arise inconveniently.
– And in the politician you of see or not?
– A policy too interesting employment … And in general where I of only do not see!
– Successes to you!
