Triathlete of Azerbaijan team Daryna Moskalenko won bronze medal on Junior European Cup in Tulcea.
“From the start in the swim I got a good place with the top four girls. I came out of the water 3rd but made up some distance on the run to T1. It was a long run. I had a problem with my helmet in transition and that lost me some time but I still managed to get up to the leaders and then we were out on the bike. It was pretty tough and 5 laps. After 2 laps we were joined by one more athlete and so we were five together. There were some attempts to break away but at the end of the bike we all entered T2 together. That went well for me and I pushed the first 300m to catch up with the German and Hungarian girls. We were at an easy pace but then the Hungarian girl accelerated and then the German did too and at that point I struggled. But, I came third and this is my first international award, so I am very happy. But there is still a lot of work! And about the future of the country - from next season I will race for Azerbaijan. This season is all prepared on the basis of Baku, under the guidance of my coach Medvedev Lev Nikolaevich, with the full support of the Federation of Azerbaijan”, - said after finish Moskalenko.
