Belarus' Daria Domracheva, who came in 37th in the pursuit race at the Olympics in Pyeongchang, shared her emotions after the finish.

"I went to the start, I wanted to fight. Unfortunately, it turned out not as we all expected.

The fourth shooting range? Everything is very clear and understandable. The strong wind was quite unpredictable. Gusts subsided, then resumed with great force. During the last shooting there was a strong gust of wind. 

But I already knew that the leaders of the race continued the race. So I decided to take a chance: I did not see the point in waiting. 

Unfortunately, the risk did not justify itself. It remains only to make a helpless gesture. 

Life does not end here," Domracheva said.
