Leading rider in the class “Laser standard” Sergey Komissarov in an interview to the press service of the Academy sailing of the Yacht club of Saint-Petersburg spoke about the world championship in Melbourne, summed up his speech at the regatta and told about the nearest plans.
– How do you rate your performance at the world Championships in Australia and a final 24 th place?
– 14 hours of flying from Melbourne to Dubai, a little analyzed race, situation, solutions, and came to the conclusion that the result is not so bad considering the mistakes I made on the regatta. In fact, in this period of time always feel a little unprepared – not in physical or technical terms, but in terms of vitalnosti in the race.
– During the regatta was conceived on the implementation of the selection criteria for getting into the national team for the Olympics? Distracted by rivalry with your competitor for ride Games Maxim Nikolaev?
– Of course, I kept it in my head, but the excitement or pressure in this regard is not felt. The world Cup is about more! It’s about competition with the best riders in the world, about how to show their best and climb as high as possible. I love “Laser” for a huge competition. In addition to the top riders, there is a large stratum of good motivated athletes who impose the struggle on each leg.
For much of the regatta you surely went in the top 20 strongest. Why failed to hold position in the last day of racing?
– Was adopted the wrong tactical decisions in the analysis of the weather. As a result of these errors dropped to 24 line, but I’m glad that people consider my 24-th place as a failure, so I proved capable of more significant result. It’s a real pleasure!
– What are the goals and expectations from the Cup regatta Princess Sofia?
– The answer is obvious. The goal is to qualify for the Olympic games.
– This week you will finally hold the house. Happy after numerous charges and regattas to go home and be with your family?
– For anybody not a secret that I spend very little time at home, even when trained in Russia. For me spent with family, family and friends time is a precious and very expensive. They are my motivator, an example of courage and determination. We go together to the goal.decisionstacticaltakenwrong
