On December 2nd the Biathlon World Cup of 2018-2019 season has started in Pokljuka (Slovenia). The first race was a single mixed relay. Student of the Faculty of Electronics and Information Technologies Artem Tyshchenko got into Ukrainian team together with Anastasiia Merkushyna.

In a pair they showed almost perfect accuracy (just 1 miss out of 40 targets) and good speed in passing the route. During the whole race Ukrainian team was in top four keeping up with leaders for 5-6 seconds. For the last stand Sportsmen from Norway, Austria and Ukraine got to the last stand almost simultaneously. Artem didn’t give an inch in a shooting speed to competitors but lacked accuracy for the last shot. In conclusion the team won the bronze. 

“I am pleased with today’s race. We worked very good at shooting, and this is a good season start, such a result gives Anastasiia and me the confidence for the next starts. I think, its not our last time here this year”, - commented Artem Tyshchenko on his performance on the World cup stage.
