Bjørndalen: Domracheva is as good a mother as a biathlete

Darya Domracheva is as good a mother as a biathlete, said eight-time biathlon Olympic champion and husband of the Belarusian athlete Ole Einar Bjørndalen in an interview with Norwegian newspaper Se og Hor.

When asked about his wife, Darya Domracheva, the Norwegian biathlete noted that she will cope with all the troubles.

"Daria is as good a mother as a biathlete. With the birth of daughter Ksenia, her life seriously changed, but Daria copes with all the troubles. Ksenia loves eating at night and my wife has to bear the entire burden at this time," he said.

The Norwegian biathlete is pleased with the training for the new season, which kicks off on November 27 in Ostersund, Sweden.

"In advance I was ready for a change, so they did not affect my training much. I took my trailer to Belarus, where I was preparing during the autumn. We used it in the preparation, two months before the birth of our daughter. Now the truck is back to Norway. Everything is going according to plan," said Ole Einar.

After the birth of daughter Ksenia, Darya Domracheva plans to return to sport. It is already training in Norway under the guidance of expert Roger Grubben, who earlier helped Ole Einar Bjørndalen win.

The three-time Olympic champion, Domracheva is going to participate in the first biathlon competitions of the season in January 2017.
