At the last World Cup biathlon race of the year 2014, the mass start race over 12.5 km in Pokljuka, Nadezhda Skardino ranked third on the podium. Right after the start, the Belarus
was in the leading group and was able to defend this good position due to a flawless shooting and good endurance. Shortly before the finish, she moved past Gabriela Soukalova to make the podium position happen. She commented on the last loop. "I saw Gabriela was little bit tired, so I did good work to pass her...I am very happy that I am shooting better now; after more practice in the New Year, I will be even better."

We look forward to 2015 and concratulate on this great result!
