"Fourcade came to the race with empty clips? Common. And how do people without a rifle out at the start? Holder is responsible for the athlete. Perhaps the sighting he was shot, and then someone got distracted and didn't fill up the cage. But that judges were not on the firing line, this was just an excuse. Yesterday officials from the IBU (international biathlon Union, — approx. "Of the tape.ru") had to disqualify Him for a clear violation of the rules, and in order to justify", — said Vasilyev.
According to the Olympic champion, the coach can not convey the clip to the athlete directly.

Then that time is deducted from his result," — said Vasilyev.
Sunday, March 19, Fourcade came to the first firing line and began to prepare to fire when he realized that his guns are empty. Cartridges provided him with a coach that is prohibited by the rules. In the end, the Frenchman won race, and the judges decided not to disqualify.
