Bjørndalen gives Domracheva his trailer for pre-season training

Ole Einar Bjørndalen has given his wife, triple Olympic champion Darya Domracheva, his famous trailer to prepare for the biathlon season.

The eight-time Olympic champion said this during the international competitions in the Norwegian Sjusjoen in an interview with TV channel NRK.

"In a short time Daria will be able to use the trailer to prepare. She needs to train in the best way and prepare for the season. For her return, she will use it more than me. It is vital that Darya Domracheva returns to the level at which she competed before," the athlete said.

The famous 20-ton trailer of the Norwegian biathlete houses a gym, a treadmill, six beds, a kitchen and a bathroom.

Darya Domracheva started training four weeks after birth of daughter Xenia on October 1 in Minsk. The first phase of training was held in Raubichi, then the Belarusian moved to Norwegian Sjusjoen, where the national biathlon team of Belarus have already gathered.

The next Biathlon World Cup will be held in Ostersund, Sweden, on 27 November, with mixed relay races.
