French biathlete Martin Fourcade commented on the result in the individual race (39th place) at the world Championships in östersund.

– Tried to run better than in the sprint, but the first place was far – quoted Fourcade L’équipe.- Error on firing, given the information received at the track, knew that could fight for the podium.

After a failed fourth shooting thought there was a chance in other races, and decided to focus on the relay.

So I didn’t want to leave everything on the racetrack, you to be in shape.

Not going to be upset, but in sporting terms this year I have a very difficult. Want to start a new page in his career.

Are you going to participate in Sunday’s mass start? At the moment I’m concentrating on the relay. I want to give everything for the team.

Note that the 39th place in the individual race is the worst result in his career Fourcade in major competitions – the world Championships and Olympic games.
