"This town connects me with many pleasant memories. Half of his Crystal globes I won here. Motivation there now. Of course, to fight for the lead in total is no longer necessary, but there is a desire well to finish the season and spend the final race on top. Last year here I gave a medal to the girl... If you get three medals, give their three little girls", — quotes the words of Fourcade-the official site of world Cup in Khanty-Mansiysk.

A year ago in Khanty-Mansiysk, Martin Fourcade after the sprint victory went to the press conference and here he was stopped by a young Russian cheerleader, who asked the Frenchman to take a picture together. In response, he took off his gold medal and hung it around the neck of a girl.

"I have won many medals at home and kids love them. I think she's happy with this gift, she will remain not only memoirs, but also a trophy. But if she's happy, then neither am I.", — then said Fourcade.
