Daniil Gleikhengauz: “We are good at helping athletes discover their talents, even if they don’t want to”
At a press conference during a press-conference in Mexico, Daniil Gleikhengauz spoke about how coaches notice the talent of skaters and also shared his expectations from the Olympic season.
Daniil Gleikhengauz: In fact, it is difficult to recognize talent immediately. You can see certain abilities, and they are always different: someone is well coordinated, someone is physically gifted, someone catch the information very quickly.
In any case, it takes time to see all this. Talent alone is never enough to achieve a result. Efficiency must be added to this talent.
What is the secret of our group’s success? We are good at helping athletes discover their talents, even if they don’t want to.
The fact that we have so many good girls ahead of the Olympic season shows that we are working in the right direction and showing results. Therefore, strong athletes gather in our group.
In general, nothing will change for us – we will continue to work on maximum, choreograph programs, work on jumps. And then they will go to competitions, and there it will become clear who is stronger, who is more stress-resistant and who will show her skating better.

Was this off my Interview because I do not speak Russian and they do speak English and the translator did not say those words, thanks for the update!
I only made the translation of what was written on the Russian site sports.ru (there’s a link to the source in the article). It’s just a small part from https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rK3AhsOKPOc&t=257s the whole press-conference. But I checked this part and that’s exactly what he said in Russian.
