The first vice-president of the Curling Federation in Russia (FKR) Andrey Sozin, in a conversation with the FAN, named the main version of why the ROC curling team failed miserably at the Olympic Games. Recall that on Thursday, February 17, the head coach of the Russian women’s curling team, Sergei Belanov, resigned after an unsuccessful performance in Beijing.
“There is nothing complicated in the answer, the team took the last place at the Games, did not complete the task, played very poorly. The coach is responsible for all results. Perhaps all this is due to the fact that three people had been ill with covid and failed to prepare. Under the current conditions, this fact can be taken as the main version, ”the source said.
Recall that the Russians lost to the representatives of Great Britain with a score of 4:9 in the final match of the preliminary round. After this defeat, the Russian team took tenth place in the standings, losing the chance of getting into the semi-finals. In the meantime, the FKR granted Belanov’s request for resignation.
