President of the Russian Olympic Committee (ROC) Leonid Tyagachyov has said that the Russian national team intends to win “from 30 to 35 gold medals” at the 2008 Olympic Games. According to him, Russian Olympians will struggle in order “to get to the troika of the best world teams during the Olympics.” The ROC head said in an interview published by the Krasnaya Zvezda newspaper on Friday that the main rivals of the Russian team will be the national teams of China and the United States. “Chinese sportsmen have been performing particularly powerfully over the past several years,” Tyagachyov admitted. “In the number of medals won at world championships our sportsmen have 20 medals more than Chinese, however Chinese representatives are noticeably making headway,” he said. Touching upon the preparation for the Beijing Olympics the ROC president noted that the potentialities of the Russian Olympic delegation have grown “the number of sportsmen, judges and service personnel has increased.” Tyagachyov admitted at the same time that “the state of affairs in the sports medicine is bad, I would say it simply does not exist.” He specified that both in federations and national teams in different kinds of sports “the proper medical support and medical control are absent.” The ROC president stressed it is necessary to settle this problem “as soon as possible.” He specified that “the state is responsible” for the sports medicine situation.
