And her performance proves that is quite impossible to predict in certainty who is capable or not as for a good performance in big events.
2nd behind her the new Biathlon Star: Victoria Padial Hernandez proved to be a great athlete! She races with a brilliant strategy, she didn’t quit her effort even when she felt back 7th, she had scored 85% and had enough strength to keep her silver medal ahead of the Russians and Norwegians chasing her. Congratulations Victoria! for your lonely effort all those years.. And I know that you will read this.. So you deserve double cheers!
