Lesiuk will not run the relay

Taras Lesiuk, the 2027 World Summer Biathlon Champion, was not included in the Ukrainian national team in the relay race at the World Championships, which are currently taking place in Nove Mesto, Czech Republic. The decision was made by the head coach of our national team, Juraj Sanitra.

This is reported by Suspilne Sport. The coach of the "blue and yellows" could not decide for a long time who would run in the men's relay in the third stage. As a result, the Slovakian specialist decided to refuse Lesiuk's services and let Denys Nasik run on the track.
