Norwegian biathlete March Raceland commented on the transition of the Swedish skier Steen Nilsson in biathlon. Raceland admitted that he sees the Olympic champion in cross-country skiing a dangerous rival.
“It’s great that she moved. Biathlon is the coolest sport, I understand why she chose him.
Did it surprise you? Yes, but it’s great! I think the transition will help the Swedish biathlon. They have grown a strong team. Nilsson and she will become even stronger. Swede an excellent shot. It is due to this they have won in recent years. And with that kind of skier, their team will be dangerous next season.
It will be very interesting. If Nilsson will follow in the footsteps of Herrmann, in two or three seasons will be included into the world elite. It will be hard to fight at the finish line”, — quotes the words Raceland Dagbladet.
