Copyright IBU/ Jerry Kokesh
It is a sunny afternoon in late September; Jakov Fak strolls anonymously down the lakeside promenade in Bled, just 20km but a world away from Pokljuka where he spends much of his training time. Wearing jeans and a t-shirt, few people recognize the twice World Champion and Olympic Bronze medalist as he sits down at a lakeside café to chat about 2016 that started at a low point but has been trending upward this summer. Fak is very relaxed on this fourth day away from training before starting a new cycle. He seems refreshed and stress-free although he had spent much of the day visiting sponsors and rushing from his home in Ljubljana to Bled. "It is never a problem for me to do sponsor work; I like it."

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. After lunch, rest and maybe a massage, session two starts and runs until almost 6 PM. 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.
