Today, there is a lot of talk about allowing Russian and Belarusian athletes to the Olympic Games. There are different opinions: both doubts and definite "no’s". But there are people whose opinions were formed under Russian bombs, missiles and shells such as Darya Blashko. This girl is familiar with the feeling that arises inside a person who hears a Russian warplane descending then circling in another attempt to drop bombs on peaceful city blocks. In Antholtz I wanted to talk to Dasha about this, about her health and plans, about how the biathlete lived in recent months, but the athlete's health made her miss the Italian stage of the Biathlon World Cup and did not allow me to interview her then. Nevertheless I did not give up the idea of a conversation and I contacted Dasha during the World Championship in Oberhof.
Biathlon in Latvia has long been associated with the name Ilmars Bricis. Now the two-time bronze medalist of the world championships has already completed his career as an athlete, and now is bringing up a new generation of biathletes of this Baltic country.

About how the past season was formed and about future plans in biathlon - in an interview with Baiba Bendiki for biathlon.com.ua.
In the list of countries-medalists at the big biathlon competitions of the past season, perhaps, the most exotic is far Greenland. Biathlon on this huge island are being developed by just one Slettemark family: husband Einstein and wife Wilog have added exotics in biathlon for many years at the World Cup and IBU Cup, and now their children have grown and ready to pick up the banner from the hands of their parents. The oldest of the new generation, Astri Ukalek, made a splash last winter by winning gold at the junior world championships in the individual women's race. To your attention is the first ever interview of representatives of the Greenland biathlon for the Ukrainian media.
