MOSCOW, December 14 (Itar-Tass) — The development of youth sport in Russia should become the key factor behind successful performance at the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil.
“Russia should stake on young athletes at the Olympic Games in Rio-de-Janeiro. We need to start working now. It’s necessary to consider athletes aged 18-22 who will be about 25 in 2016 as the national team’s backbone,” Valentin Balakhnichev, the president of the Russian Athletics Federation, told an Olympic gathering in Moscow on Friday.
“We should also bear in mind problems that we have to solve in the near future. I would single out three directions: an anti-doping campaign, the facilities available to sport federations and a shortage of top-class experts,” Balakhnichev said.
