The group of famous Russian figure skating coach Alexei Mishin held in Beijing a seminar for local athletes and coaches. He was invited by National Olympic Committee of China. According to Mishin more than 50 Chinese coaches, as well as almost all the Chinese skaters attended the seminar, that started on July 4.
I didn’t expect that this event will get such a huge interest. The seminar was attended by more than 50 coaches, and that’s not counting the athletes. Young athlets of our group – Andrei Kutovoi, Evgeni Semenenko and Alisa Lozko came with me to China with to compare their forces. – Mishin told.
He also told that Chinese athletes surprised him with their self-dependence:
Indicative detail – athletes at the training camp clean for themselves, wash dishes. There is zero snobbery and absolute self-dependence, the same in relation to the work -.. In China each is a coach for himself, we’ve noticed a lot of useful things for us.
