Last week ended the championship in the Laser radial who won the pupil of the school “Krestovsky island” Daniil Krutskikh. We met with him in Moscow to see what it’s like to get a telegram from the President, and the young champion?
We also asked his father Vladimir Krutskikh to comment.
My goal was not to come first in a separate race, and to race stable. And I did it.
J. R. Daniel, we congratulate you with the victory! How did you regatta?
D. K. Thank you, very nice! In fact, the regatta was very difficult. The weather was different, there were days when the muzzle of 15-18 and even 20 knots. Very tired – for the first race come out full of energy, the second is hard to chase, and the third after moral and strong-willed. But I’m certainly in strong winds better, because I weigh almost 10 pounds more than others.
My goal was not to come first in a separate race, and to race stable. And I did it. I went to the group and tried to work on the first traverse began to sweat and the lead to have more clean wind to go. So I won the first two races, and then consistently went in the top five.
J. R. you Have my last race was the most unsuccessful and went on release. What is the reason?
D. K. first, this day was very light wind, not my weather. The organizers were able to hold only one race and that was reduced.
And secondly, I’m not that relaxed, but not thought about how to win. Tried to go alongside their main rivals, and it’s certainly the wrong tactic. So I’m in the beginning was the tenth, and then the wave, with almost no wind gradually began to lose.
V. K. In the last day the weather really was very heavy, the wind has gone almost 180 degrees. Dan was in the beginning with their closest rivals, and when they parted at the corners, he decided to go in the center. Unfortunately, the wind center is almost not there.
J. R. as we know, you personally congratulated Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin. Who else congratulated you?
D. K. Yes, it is true, Mr Putin sent a telegram to the Ministry of sports in my name. (Telegram published on the Kremlin website) But I learned this from my mom.
In General, many congratulated me. Someone personally wrote, someone on the page greetings posted.
J. R. you Have a coach acts as a father. Personal relationships do not interfere with the process?
D. K. actually it’s hard. Training and fees it is for me to coach, Vladimir Nikolaevich, and the house father. But, unfortunately, does not always work 100% to share these roles. Sometimes family drag in the water, sometimes Vice versa.
V. K. is Really difficult to be a father and a coach, because I worried for him more than just for the athlete. Sometimes there are situations when fighting. I’m trying to give him advice, he believes that he knows better how. But then, when emotions subside a little, he ponders it again and listens to me.
J. R. What are your plans next?
D. K. after a week fly to Spain for the Cup of Princess Sofia. I’ll try to compete for a place at the Olympics in Tokyo in a class the Laser standard, but there the competition is much stronger. I, frankly, do not build illusions, but will fight. Although at the moment I still need to catch up with Sergey Komissarov.
V. K. Daniel, very well proved in Australia. He and others showed, and he realized that with his size and weight to compete. Importantly, the right tactics, and with this he fared well. If not now, then in another year he will be able to compete with the current giants.
J. R. who is funding fees and travel?
D. K. All departures on competitions, camps, training fully paid by the school “Krestovsky island”. For this and for the support that I give them many thanks.
V. K. At the moment, funding from the team there, since the eve of the Olympics ryf provides funds only under the leader of the team.daniilkrutskikh
