MINSK, February 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Belorussia’s President Alexander Lukashenko has congratulated the three-fold Olympic champion, biathlete Darya Domracheva on another medal after the mass start at the Sochi Olympics.
Earlier, the rivals congratulated Domracheva with the victory at the Games. Thus, Czech biathlete Gabriela Soukalova, who came second, noted: “I was sure that Darya Domracheva would win this race. After her outstanding performance I was convinced that nobody can enter into rivalry with her. That’s why I was struggling only with myself on the distance.” Bronze winner, Norwegian biathlete Tirill Eckhoff added: “What can I say about Darya Domracheva’s performance? She is incredible! Three gold medals that she won here are justly hers.”
Belorussian Darya Domracheva became the first biathlete in history that won three gold medals within one Olympics.
The 27-year-old athlete won the pursuit race, individual race and the mass start in Sochi.
Four gold medals at one Olympics were won by Soviet speed skater Lydia Skoblikova (Innsbruck 1964) and Norwegian biathlete Ole Einar Bjorndalen (Salt Lake City 2002). Finnish skier Marja-Liisa Kirvesniemi (Sarajevo 1984), Dutch speed skater Yvonne van Gennip (Calgary 1988), Croatian downhill skier Janica Kostelic (Salt Lake City) and German biathlete Michael Greis (Turin 006) won three gold medals each.
