“I would not let Shashilov close to the national team. He has a constant alcohol addiction, he is a disgrace to the Russian biathlon, ”says Alexander Tikhonov – Biathlon

Four-time Olympic champion in biathlon Alexander Tikhonov commented on the news that the coach of the Russian women’s team Mikhail Shashilov will continue to work in the team.

“If I had solved this issue, I would not have let him close to the national team. I was now asked what his positive and negative sides are – for me he has everything negative. Moreover, he has a constant alcohol addiction, so I don’t even want to discuss this candidacy.

The results shown by two of our athletes at the Olympics (Kristina Reztsova and Uliana Nigmatullina – Sports.ru) did not depend on him. They didn’t prepare for it. Without them, there would be no medals.

He is a disgrace to the entire Russian biathlon. What is happening is just surreal,” Tikhonov said.
