Today, 28-го August, in Nikolaev in the water Aquarius complex the presentation of a new springboard for the diving which cost makes 40 thousand hryvnias took place. At a ceremony of delivery of a new water sports shell there were the deputy governor Vladimir Lusta (he is a chairman of the Nikolaev office of National Olympic Committee of Ukraine), the chief of regional management concerning physical culture and sport Alexander Sadovsky, well and, certainly, Nikolaev Olympians - "water-transport workers" Ilya Kvasha (the bronze prize-winner of the Olympic Games), Elena Fedorova and Konstantin Milyaev.
It is asked: where there was this board BEFORE the Olympic Games? The g - Lust's N explained it so:
- Certainly, one doesn't sharpen the axes after the time they are needed. The Nikolaev office of NOC found possibility of assignment for acquisition of a modern board for a diving two months ago. We didn't manage to make this delivery before the Olympic Games. So left that boards aren't on sale in Ukraine freely. Therefore we had to look for ways that to get them...
What "does" the new board "promise" to our athletes?
- This board really unusual. It is called as "Dyurafleks". Them do only in America, - the trainer of the Nikolaev Olympians Tatyana Maryanko tells. - We long waited for it. Money is allocated in time, and the board was late because very heavy there was a delivery - through Germany from America. In principle, the whole world jumps on these boards... Though this shell a little bit was late, came after the Olympic Games. But the following Olympic Games begin already today. Athletes at us young. Therefore this shell will bring us very big benefit.
Tatyana Maryanko also reported that Ilya Kvasha couldn't train to the maximum and completely carry out the program as he had to train on old Soviet springboards, which any more one ten years.
- After pool prevention we will establish this board, - with pleasure Tatyana Maryanko notes. - I think that our bronze prize-winner of the Olympic Games will adequately train on this board, even more to complicate the program and to show good results at high, world level.
Who knows: perhaps, our "bronze" jumper Ilya Kvasha quite could extend and on a medal of higher test if this board "presented" earlier. If to reflect, why in general there is NOC and its regional office, if not to provide athletes to all necessary? To provide systematically and constantly, instead of to make loud "gifts".
