Copyright IBU/Jerry Kokesh
Morning training at the Chiemgau Arena ends around 11:30 for the Ukrainian women's team, but that is just half of the day's work.

Fourteen hours later, the whole squad is back on rollerskis, preparing for three test sprint competitions in a row, with just 10 minutes recovery between each. That is how it rolls during training season; a never-ending cycle of eat, train, eat, rest, train, sleep, eat, train...until the snow flies and the new season begins.

Training never stops after success or slows down until after the winter season is completed; just ask the Ukrainian women's team. It simply changes, moves to the next stage and goes on; even on misty dreary days like one this week in Ruhpolding. After a successful IBU Sumer Biathlon World Championships with 11 medals, the Ukrainian team got a week-long break back at home, but just as quickly moved to Ruhpolding for another 18 days of hard work.

The Italian Team split their most recent training camp between the IBU Cup venue in Martell and the 2017 IBU WCH venue at Hochfilzen.
