At 2002 Winter Olympics Russians To Perform As Successful As In Nagano

At the 2002 winter Olympic Games in Salt Lake City in the United States Russian athletes will win as many medals as in 1998 in Nagano in Japan. Leonid Tyagachev, president of the Russian Olympic Committee, voiced this opinion at a press conference in Moscow. Tyagachev recalled that in Nagano Russians were the third in the unofficial team classification with 18 awards, nine of them gold. Leonid Tyagachev said that, as reported by coaches in the Olympic sports, the preparation of Olympians is proceeding as planned. Good conditions have been created for them and virtually all most promising candidatures to national teams appear fit. Especially as regards ski racing. Biathlonists are also "up in the arms". According to the president of the Russian Olympic Committee, as seen from recent performances and training sessions, skating, the Nordic combination, freestyle, some other sports like short-track have buttressed up their positions and two medals can be hoped for.
