UFA, 21 January 2019. /Bashinform News Agency, Natalia Ovcharuk/ translated by Tatiana Aksyutina/.
The representative of the Bashkir biathlon Anton Babikov won a gold medal of the IBU Cup. The Russian athlete finished first at a distance of 12.5 km with a result of 31 minutes, 36.6 seconds.
Babikov coped with all four firing lines with no penalties in the German Arber.
“Certainly, I am very happy, especially considering that Arber is a completely new experience for me. I compete for the first time here. I wasn’t in my best form, but clean shooting was enough to win”, the press service of the International Biathlon Union quotes Babikov.
The Frenchman Aristide Begue (+9.4; 1 penalty) climbed to the second step of the pedestal. The third place was taken by the Russian Alexander Povarnitsyn (+38.8; 2 penalties).
