He is a member of the Biathlon team of the team. Since 1999 he has been living in Banská Bystrica . Although Israel is certainly not a hotbed of cross-country skiing, nothing could stop Daniel Kuzmin from taking part in the Nordic World Ski Championships in 2003 in Val di Fiemme, Italy. Kuzmin, who was raised in snowy eastern Russia is the only cross-country athlete in the Israeli Ski Federation. In the 2003, Nordic World Ski Championships, he finished 61st in the extremely tiring and demanding 30-kilometer classical-style race in the northeastern Italian valley. He was just 14 minutes behind the Norwegian trio that finished first, second and third, yet Kuzmin had said before the race that his aim was not to win. He's just happy to be here, he said. "I decided to get the Israeli nationality about one year ago," Kuzmin said. "I got it not only because of my personal belief, but also thanks to my sister who lives in Tel Aviv and is in the Israeli army. I am very proud to compete for my country. "I wanted to compete at the Olympics, but I had just obtained Israeli citizenship and my entry was not possible." Kuzmin was guarded by four policemen during his stay in the Italian Alps, but he had said that he was not worried about security. "For us, it is quite normal," he said. "That is life." The American and Turkish teams are also being guarded by Italian police. 2003 was not the first time that Kuzmin has been in Italy. He had competed in several less prestigious cross-country events here before. "I started skiing when I was five years old," he said. Kuzmin also took part in the 10K and 50K races during the championships.
