The video clip above says the most about how sorry Tandrevold was after the joint start during the National Championships in roller biathlon a little over a month ago.
After eight booms (!) On three standing shots, she was still over three minutes behind Fossum friend Tiril Eckhoff, and ended up in 13th place in the race with only Norwegian runners.
After the finish, Tandrevold was supported by Eckhoff and coach Patrick Oberegger.
– I was a little unsure if I should travel here. It’s got a little too much for my head. I went here because I felt I had to challenge myself in competition. I can not say that I am going home with a good feeling, the 24-year-old told NRK after the crash in Voss on 20 September.
The day before, Tandrevold was number 20 in the sprint. There she missed six times, four of them standing. This meant that she returned home from Voss with a total hit rate of 40.
– Tired in the head
It is far below the level a top-level biathlete tends to be at. In comparison, Marte Olsbu Røiseland delivered a hit percentage of 82 on standing in the World Cup last season.
Tandrevold now tells that she knows why the NM in roller biathlon was such a solid downturn.
– I have concluded that I was very tired and that it had become very much. I had tried a little too hard for a little too long. What happens then is that I get tired in the head, and then one is not completely involved in the shooting technique, she answers NRK’s question if she has identified the problem.
– Bad feeling
Tandrevold thinks she can learn from what happened at Voss.
– It is a bad feeling when you feel that you hit, and then the flashes do not go down. This is a very good lesson, because that is exactly what is happening in the last week of the World Cup and one is a little tired. Then I can make the mistakes I made in the summer NM. Even if one wants to perform all the time, I think it’s better that it happens then and that I – hopefully – have learned until the World Cup is underway.
– How did you feel after the NM?
– The mood was not quite at its peak in the time until half an hour afterwards, but after that it was fine. I actually got some praise for getting back on the horse quickly. It went faster than before, so I would say that it is a positive development in terms of mood not to dig too deep. All you have to do is get it right after the competition, and you’ll be done with it.
– Failure of TV recording
NRK expert Ola Lunde buys Tandrevold’s explanation that she was tired when she went on the shooting spree at Voss.
– I think the participation in the TV 2 program “Landskampen” took very hard. She was very tired when she came to Blinkfestivalen and may not have been able to build a profit after that. From what I hear, she has in return worked very well lately, he says.
Lunde points out that Tandrevold’s standing shooting was a problem last winter, even though she had a good season.
– She should be up to a standing percentage of over 80, maybe 83-85 if she is to be able to take the last step. Last year she had 75, and that is too bad compared to the best, he says.
– What is the difference between Tandrevold’s standing shooting and what the best deliver?
– It’s mostly about the mental. The very best have an enormous self-confidence when they shoot standing. They really believe that they will meet. In addition, it is important to make sure you have enough hours in the standing position so that you reduce the movement in the weapon. Finally, one must work well with the exhaust. Ingrid is currently only 24 years old, and is at an age where she can take big steps if she is patient and works hard. It takes a long time to become good at shooting, says Lunde.
Tandrevold ended up in a strong 7th place in the World Cup overall last season, but is still waiting for the individual first place.
In return, she has two World Cup golds and a number of World Cup victories in the relay and not least several 2nd places and an individual World Cup silver from Østersund on the merit list.
Fun to shoot again
The Fossum runner told that she put away her rifle for a period after the National Championships in Voss to get some distance.
– After the National Championships, I put my weapon away for a while, actually longer than in a good period, before we traveled here. It made me feel like I was coming here to the gathering in Italy with a surplus both in my body and head. Here I have had a lot of fun with the shooting and achieved a lot in three weeks, says Tandrevold.
– You need to be reminded of it sometimes, but shooting is like physical training in that you must have a surplus. It’s not just that more is better yourself, she adds.
Tandrevold has not made major changes before the coming season, but feels better forewarned than before. The only change she has made is to change the shaft of the rifle.
– I have started using the old spare shaft since it fits better the way I look now, and not the way I looked when I was 16 years old. It feels very good, and I have not considered changing again, she says.
The World Cup next season, which will be different than usual due to the corona epidemic, starts in Kontiolahti, Finland, on 28 November.
