Artyom Zakharov will focus on the Olympic qualifying cycle
Kazakhstan track specialist Artyom Zakharov is planning to focus more on the track program and the qualifying cycle of the 2024 Olympic Games, which will be held in Paris.
As the basis of his road training, the athlete wants to choose a more flexible and less saturated calendar of Astana Qazaqstan Development Team.
“This year is very important for me, as I have to participate in the qualifying competitions to gain the necessary points to participate in the Olympic Games in Paris. As a preparation for track competitions, a road base is also needed, and our development team offers a simpler, but at the same time high-quality and convenient calendar, which suits me more than the WorldTour calendar, with which track competitions and, in particular, World Cups will overlap too often. Therefore, in agreement with the management of Astana Qazaqstan Team, I decided to spend 2023 together with our development team and, accordingly, Kazakhstan National Track Team”, – said Artyom Zakharov.
