NOVOSIBIRSK, February 18. /ITAR-TASS/. Russian biathlete Olga Vilukhina in bed with cold will hardly be able to take part in the Olympics relay race scheduled for February 19 and February 21, Olga Vilukhina's coach Valery Ivanov told Itar-Tass. Her condition has worsened. She might need strong medicine for treatment, but the decision rests with her doctors. Her nose is running. If it were a World Cup she would not have run, the coach said.
A final decision on Vilukhina's performance in the mass start race rests with the coaches of the Russian national team.
Olga Vilukhina's coach said that the relay race is one of Vilukhina's favorite competitions in biathlon. "She is good and strong at relays. Quick and precise shooting is her strong point," the coach said.
Being unwell, Olga Vilukhina, who had won silver in sprint race, failed to take part in women's 15-kilometer ski race on February 14. Vilukhina was in 22d position in mass start ski race held on Monday.
Olga Vilukhina, 25, comes from Bashkortostan. Since 2009 she lives in Novosibirsk, where she has been trained at a sports school. Her coach, Valery Ivanov, has been training the skier for 15 years.
