I proved that I'm stronger than Bjorndalen

Emil Hegle Svendsen (Norway), twwice Olympic champion in Vancouver, triple World champion, World Cup holder:

— This year I proved, that I'm stronger than Bjorndalen. I became the best biathlete. I hope, I will continue to perform successfully. My dream in Vancouver was a gold medal and I managed with it. I very liked the way the Olympics games were held, I have nothing to complain about. Of course, when you turn back and analyze — you realize, that some things could have been done much better. But, I think, it's silly to regret — everything has gone. I have been training one program for the last four years. Last year I felt lack of loading, I was training in sparing regime. My skating speed was poor, I did not always show a great speed, was not in best condition at all. Next year I'll try to add loading and to work seriously on my speed. I will train more and harder for sure. We'll see how much I'll be able to bear. I'm going to train especially harder before the Olympic games in Sochi. I think, Russia will hold one of the best Olympic games in history: it has so much money. To my mind the main factors for holding such grandiose events like the Olympic games — are a lot of people and money.
