Yesterday the Nikolaev mayor Vladimir Chaika met in the city hall Olympians who in a month will go to Beijing.
The majority of the Nikolaev athletes who have got the Olympic visas, now are on collecting and competitions. At a meeting there was only a third of licensees: batutist - the Olympian Yury Nikitin, divers Ilya Kvasha, Konstantin Milyaev, Elena Fedorova and Alevtina Koroleva, yachtsmen Pavel Kalinchev and Andrey Shafranyuk, canoeists Maxim Prokopenko and Sergey Bezugly, and also honored trainers of Ukraine Vladimir Gorzhy, Tatyana Maryanko and Sergey Gumenyuk.
The mayor Vladimir Chaika reported that the city power assumed obligations for an occasion of apartments to the Nikolaev Olympians. The housing will be received by each finalist Igr in Beijing! After these pleasant words the mayor handed over to Maxim Prokopenko the letter of guarantee according to which the oarsman will celebrate housewarming in the fall.
Then the floor was taken by trainers who, generally spoke about the problems connected with preparation for the Olympic Games. Vladimir Gorzhy complained that as a part of the Olympic delegation there was no place to the trainer Lyudmila Gorzhy. And presence on the Olympic tournament of batutist of two Nikolaev trainers - vital need as men and women compete at the same time, and either Nikitin, or Movchan remains without trainer's care. The second problem - on the eve of the Olympic Games nikolayevets have no opportunity to train on the trampoline similar to Beijing, with the same rigidity of a grid. Meanwhile, athletes need to jump at least month on such to get used. But there is also a pleasant news. The injury of a back which prevented Yury Nikitin to make a speech successfully at the World Cup stage in Spain, was not so serious.
Tatyana Maryanko spoke about the troubles not less. The first - synchronous couple.Who will go to Beijing - ours Fedorova and the Queen or a luganchanka Voloshchenko and Pismenskaya - will decide in the championship of Ukraine. All merits of the Nikolaev couple which regularly beat the main competitors during the preolympic cycle, "are cancelled" by the sports management. There was the last and decisive fight - on July 7 in Zaporozhye.
Alas, the issue of pool rent still isn't resolved. Tatyana Maryanko thanked the director of "Aquarius" Stepan Petrinka who at the good will lets athletes to the hopping pool. But how many such charity can last? And still Tatyana Maryanko lodge in Beijing … outside the Olympic village. It is very curious if to consider that a half of the national team of Ukraine on a diving - nikolayevets.
In reply Vladimir Chaika expressed readiness to meet and the minister of affairs of a family, youth and sports Yury Pavlenko, and the head of NOC of Ukraine Sergey Bubka to protect interests of the Nikolaev sports.
At the end of a meeting the mayor handed over to Olympians of an icon of the Saint Nikolay, consecrated the day before. And then Vladimir Chaika at the request of the head of the National union of journalists of Ukraine Igor Lubchenko handed over an award to the honored journalist of Ukraine Alexander Kremko recognized "The newspaper photographer of year" in All-Ukrainian professional creative competition.
