Maxim Nikolaev: “We will continue training in Sochi”
One of the country's strongest lasers, Maxim Nikolaev, spoke on the pages of the Vtsport.ru website about his adventures in recent weeks:
It began with the fact that the training camp in Italy, scheduled from March 2 to 25, was canceled due to the spread of the virus in the country. It was decided to transfer it to Spain, on Palma.
Upon arrival on March 8, the situation was very pleasant, they immediately started training, there were a lot of people on the water, I joined a group of Swiss, at the end of the day training races of all teams were held.
But already on March 12, it became clear that the Princess Sofia Cup and other regattas were being canceled. Many athletes immediately started to disperse, and a questionnaire appeared on the forum of lasers, asking who was left to train.
At first there was no panic, and people planned to stay, but literally every day the panic increased, and as a result, everyone left on the 15th. In connection with the news about the closure of borders, we also promptly left.
Now I am at home and will soon leave for Sochi in order to go on water and continue training.
