Vyacheslav Fetisov believes that the medals plan made for the Russian national team at the Athens Olympics was too big
Head of the Russian Federal Agency for Physical Culture, Sport and Tourism Vyacheslav Fetisov believes that the medals plan made for the Russian national team at the Athens Olympics was too big. He said this to RIA Novosti in the exclusive interview before landing on the Sheremetevo-1 airport in Moscow. "The plan was too big and every Russian Olympic victory became an event. At the end of the Games, at was a great pleasure to see the performance of gymnasts Alina Kabaeva and Irina Chaschina". Fetisov also said that the Russian failures at the Athens Olympics will very soon be looked into. "We'll gather all the coaches and presidents of the sports federations to have a discussion", he said. In the opinion of Fetisov, for success at the next summer Olympics budding sportsmen have to be closely worked with. "Attention should be drawn above all to our reserve, because not only veterans vied in many sports in Athens. I would like to thank them all: they performed well at these Games", he said. As regards the Chinese success in Athens, Fetisov said: "It did not surprise me". "The Chinese show a very serious approach to sport and training. I think at the 2008 Games in Beijing they will be beyond competition. They gather coaches and athletes specially for the Beijing Games and I can understand their ambitions", Fetisov said.
