BEIJING, 7 February (BelTA) – Belarusian Iryna Leshchanka was not happy with her performance in the Women's 15km Individual at the 2022 Olympics where she placed 41st, BelTA has learned.
"Of course, I wanted to show a higher result. I hoped to shoot much more accurately, but it did not work, I made one mistake in all four shooting bouts. As a result, this affected my over performance," said Iryna Leshchanka, the Pyeongchang Olympic champion in the relay. The best-placed Belarusian was Dzinara Alimbekava who was in the lead before the fourth shooting bouts but missed a target on the last one and finished in 5th.
The Men's 20km Individual with four shooting bouts is scheduled for 8 February. The biathlon program in Beijing features 11 medal events.
