SOCHI, February 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian athletes will do their utmost to lead the national team to the top in Sochi 2014 medal standings, skier Maxim Vylegzhanin, the silver medal winner in men’s relay 4x10km at the current Olympic Winter Games, told ITAR-TASS on Monday, February 17.
“There are still three disciplines, in which we can win medals. It’s a success that we have surpassed our own results of Vancouver. However, I think the athletes will do their utmost to lead the team to the first place,” Vylegzhanin said.
The athlete said he had been prepared to run men’s relay in any weather. “We are not picky in terms of weather. We ran in the sun, rain, snow and fog. All are in the same conditions, and it’s not an obstacle,” he said.
