We all wonder how the fate of a talented person. That is what will be discussed in our material. About sports career, about successes and defeats, about family.
Asking a question to any sports fan about who his biathlon is associated with, he will answer without thinking: with Domracheva. This fragile and tender girl is the pride of the country. All Belarusians are proud of their compatriot for the fact that in just a few years she has managed to reach unheard of peaks and beat the most experienced German athletes in competitions.
At the moment, Dasha is called a fast rocket, for agility and dexterity.
How is it that a simple girl, a native of a country that has never been famous for biathletes, has become the best in the world?
Daria Domracheva: biography. Indecisive steps
A baby was born in a family that had nothing to do with sport. Darya's parents are architects.
A bright star lit up in the summer of August 3, 1986, in the capital, Minsk.
When the little one just turned four years old, the family decided to move to Siberia.
In a small, one might say, small town of Nyagan, there were practically no opportunities for the development of physical data of a young athlete.
But the basketball section was found, it was here that Domracheva signed up. Only later, after a while, the girl gave her preference for skiing, thanks to the influence of her older brother.
The first time it was decided to go skiing in 1999, and I must say, it was a success. Young Dasha seemed to be born for skating.
The school where she studied Domracheva was professional, with an economic and legal bias.
Then Daria immediately enters the second year of Tyumen University in the sports faculty.
In 2003, the champion returns to Minsk, where he continues his studies. But in BSEU there was no similar faculty, so I had to stop the choice at the department of tourism.
In 2009, a young graduate defends a diploma and begins a career in the world of sports.
It all started when Dasha joined the Russian biathlon team and immediately made an impression of high potential. But the competition was incredibly high, and hoping for at least a place in the adult composition was meaningless. But the tenacity of the champion knows no obstacles.
In 2004, Domracheva continues to train in the national team and builds a professional career. Successes girls there.
The first competitions in Belarus were held in 2005, and in 2006 Daria had a debut at the World Cup. According to the results she took only 16th place. But I must say that for a beginner it was an excellent result.
Further persistent athlete began to go up the hill and only got into the top ten.
It would seem that above this limit it will not be possible to jump, but Domracheva is surprised by all, and the unthinkable happens in Oberhof - the biathlete is leading in the race for the cup. But an unfortunate misunderstanding occurs, during the shooting, Belarusian biathlon Daria Domracheva makes mistakes and shoots at the target while standing, although according to the conditions of the competition it was necessary to take a lying position. She is disqualified, and the victory just floats away. The athlete give only the third place of honor.
By the way, with the young lady there is another embarrassment, and again in Oberhof. She manages to shoot at the target, but not for her, but for someone else.
But this did not prevent Daria from bringing the world champion medal. The girl is winning silver. But triumphant appearances are still ahead.
In 2014, blue-eyed blonde climbed to the top of success. At the Olympics, she received well-deserved gold in the race for the fifteen-kilometer distance.
Three days later - the second gold medal. Again, all rivals were left behind in the individual race, although this was to be expected, there was a sense of purpose and strength to win.
And on February 17 - another success and gold again. This is unheard of luck. Such a grandiose triumph did not yet know the story.
Belarusians are proud of their compatriot and wish her only victories and only the first place in each competition.
This question worried every admirer of the talent of a wonderful athlete and real Belarusian beauty.
In the media quite often flashed gossip about Daria's personal life, about her novels and relationships.
But now the time has come, and the girl was often noticed in the company of Olympic champion Ole Einar Bjoerndalen. The couple stubbornly refuted rumors of a love affair, because at that time the man was legally married and the athletes simply didn’t need such a scandal. Why advertise just started a relationship.
However, the public soon learns that the multiple winner gets divorced from his wife. Once again, the headlines are full of news about the new turn of the relationship between Daria and Ole.
But Ole Einar Bjoerndalen and Daria Domracheva did not consider it necessary to tell publicly about their personal lives and chose to keep relationships secret so as not to bring the matter to scandal.
For many years, the relationship of champions was a big question. Although, I must admit, the couple has always been together, they tried to part only for the period of training and participation in various competitions and championships.
Young people were hiding from the press and tried to take all sorts of steps in order not to fall under the lenses of cameras of curious paparazzi.
Point in disputes
In 2016, biathlonists were married, as was revealed through photographs from the ceremony, published in a local newspaper. Only close relatives and friends were invited to the wedding. That's how they became spouses Ole Bjoerndalen and Daria Domracheva. The wedding took place without much pathos.
And a happy family admitted that they will soon be expected to replenish, for which they are extremely happy.
Darya Domracheva’s child was born on October 1, 2016. She gave her husband a baby Xenia. For the first time in many years, Ula forgot about sports and missed the training season in 2016–2017. The wife reported that they will return to the sport in early 2017.
With the birth of her daughter in the family of champions, much has changed, now the schedule of parents' lives is dictated not by sport, but by little Xenia. Only she is subject to all the time Ole and Daria. Young people tend to give all their free time to a newborn and be near in the first months of a girl’s life.
But the time will come, and the athletes will again begin to conquer the peaks in the hope of new victories.
Return to career
As it became known, the couple of gold medalists are looking for a nanny for a girl, because Ole Einar Bjoerndalen and Daria Domracheva intend to resume training and return to the arena of big-time sports.
It remains for us to wish good luck and new achievements to the family couple. We hope that Daria Domracheva, whose biography was reviewed in this article, will not only glorify her country and bring many gold awards, overcoming more and more new horizons on snow-covered roads.
