Today we need to increase enrollment of children in figure skating schools, to find as many talented guys as possible to give a boost to the development of this sport, Olympic champion in ice dancing Natalia Bestemianova said after a ceremony to sign a cooperation agreement between the Vitebsk Oblast Figure Skating Federation and the Moscow Oblast Figure Skating Federation.
“The decision has already been taken. The Ski Union will be reformed in the near future,” Alexander Konyuk said. It is expected that the union will be chaired by a head of a sports federation affiliated with it.
The federations deliberately set the bars too high before the Olympic Games to get more money for the preparation, both from the budget and off-budget sources. In fact, there is no accountability for the money spent, said Andrei Astashevich.
The game and a master class were held on 12 April at the Falcon Club Arena. Young basketball players were split into two teams headed by the famous coaches Nikolai Alekseev, Alexander Poderachev, Natalia Trofimova, and Yegor Meshcheryakov.
