Vladislav Tretyak was the first to be registered Friday as a candidate for president of Russia's Ice Hockey Federation
Ice hockey legend and three-time Olympic champion Vladislav Tretyak was the first to be registered Friday as a candidate for president of Russia's Ice Hockey Federation. He was nominated for the post by the Moscow Ice Hockey Federation, as regulations state that an applicant cannot propose his own candidacy. Previous head of the federation Alexander Steblin resigned at a March 24. The federation immediately set up an 11-member commission to prepare for a special session slated for April 25 to elect a new president. When asked why he had resigned, Steblin said the federation was in need of new people and new ideas. "I am not ashamed of my work," he said. "There were not always [good] results, and in the last Olympics [in Italy], we had a brilliant [quarterfinals] victory over Canada and then a weak game against Finland." Russia's Olympic ice-hockey team finished fourth at the Winter Olympics in Turin, failing to reach the finals after losing 0:4 to Finland in the semifinals and then 0:3 to the Czech Republic in the game for the bronze medal. The deadline for applications for the post of president of the national ice hockey federation is noon April 15.
