SOCHI, February 21. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian national speedskating team was in practical terms weaker than the rivals in the team race at the Sochi Olympics, Russian speedskater Denis Yuskov said.
The Russian national team failed to qualify for the semifinals, losing to the South Korean team. “We made a very good start, but failed at the finish,” said the Russian speedskater, world champion in the 1,500 meter race.
“However sad to admit this, our team was actually weaker than our rivals today. The South Koreans and the Dutch show very high results in this race and it is hard to predict who will win,” Yuskov said.
He said he felt comfortable performing in the race. “We kept the pace. We decided to speed up toward the finish, and we were doing this,” he said. “All through the race I did not realize that we were losing to the Koreans. It was only when I stopped that I saw that they have won,” Yuskov said.
