At the Asian Championship in canoe and kayak racing, our athletes have been able to win three licenses. It is expected to win more licenses tomorrow.
In previous Olympic race, Vadim Menkov was only one who had sufficient level of training to compete for the licenses. To date, other members of the team are also competitive enough. This is the result of experiments and training. The head coach Alexander Panomarev told about athletes’ training in an interview to Uzbekistan Today before leaving for the competition.
Asian Championships showed that the national team is prepared better this time.
Kayaker Alexey Mochalov and canoeist Gerasim Kochnev won licenses at the distance of 1000 meters.
Our athletes managed to win another Olympic license, becoming the best among the crews-twos. Canoeists Vadim Menkov and Serik Mirbekov won it.
