So mom brought her in ski sports section. Olga started and soon became so absorbed that the sport was in first place in his life priorities. But really Olga Vilukhina fell in love with the sport when they switched skis more difficult, but such an exciting biathlon.

So began a brilliant sports biography of Olga Vilukhina.

At the European Championship in Bansko Olga Vilukhina won the gold medal at the next two Championships in Canmore and Nowe Miasto won silver and gold.
Olga Vilukhina took into account all our mistakes and were able to «catch up» where you feel your weaknesses. The hard work of the athletes impressed. Soon it bore fruit. In the European Championship, which was held in Ufa biathlete won gold in the four existing disciplines – the pursuit, the sprint, individual and relay race. It was a real triumph. Because none of the colleagues of Olga since 1994 not been able to establish an absolute record of the Championships, having won so many awards in one continental championship.
The name Olga Vilukhina became widely known. The girl invited to the world Cup in Khanty-Mansiysk in March 2009. And she met all expectations, showing in the sprint the best time among Russian athletes. Vilukhina was in the «flower ceremony». At the end of the 2008-2009 season it was included in the national team. Before the new season first time a girl was prepared with the main team.
Unfortunately, in Oberhof Olga Vilukhina is ill. High hemoglobin level is simply «rolled over». Because of the heat beginning to curl the blood. The temperature rose to 40 degrees. After returning the girl went to rehab, but during this period of lost form. Therefore, after the control training, the coaching staff decided to send it to the IBU Cup. But also here all was not as rosy as hoped. Olga Vilukhina managed to finish only 14th place.
It seems that the sport tide has turned against women. Austria’s Olga Vilukhina in a hurry forgot the start number on my feet. While the girl brought, it took precious 40 seconds. These seconds she lost a leader. At the IBU Cup in German Altenberg, she could become only the 17th. From further competition Ola had to be abandoned due to heavy otitis.
Next season my health again failed her. But in January of 2012 in the Czech Nove mesto na Morave Vilukhina managed to snatch the victory. She set a personal record: 5th place in the sprint. And in March, she for the first time in his career he managed to rise to 3rd place in the pursuit race at the world Championships in Ruhpolding, Bavarian.
Luck smiled again to the athlete. The first stage of the 2012-2013 season in Ostersund, Sweden, was for Olga to be the most successful in their careers at that time: she took third place in the sprint and never dropped below 5th in the other two races.

Husband of the sportswoman became her personal trainer Valery Ivanov. They brought to him forever sick 10-year-old Olya’s parents. Ivanov put a lot of effort in promising the girl grow out of her Olympic champion. He coached it for 15 years.
When the girl grew up, at some point I realized that Valery Ivanov of interest to her not only as a coach but also as a wonderful person and a man. More about the girl, about her life, tastes and character no one knew, even her parents.
Reliable, calm, confident Valery Ivanov became the best Oli in the world man. He understood her like no other.
