Alexander Zhukov: If your enemy is not well informed – he is disarmed

Yesterday , February 21, a Russian short track speed skating athlete Viktor Ahn won the men’s 500m short track speed skating gold at the Olympic Games in Sochi. A little later, the Russian team in short track won gold in the 5000m relay. Alexander Zhukov is sure that the opponents have underestimated the force of the Russian team.

“Opponents have underestimated not only Victor Ahn, but the strength of the whole short track team in general. Good short track speed skating athletes have grown up in our country, for example Grigoriy and Simyon Yelistratov. They were undervalued”, – said the head of the ROC.

“One great Chinese leader said: “If your enemy is not well informed – he is disarmed”. We have a strong team that wins in different sports, many of which are new to us. Our friends and rivals did not expect that. Who could have imagined, we’d win two gold medals in snowboarding – in the parallel slalom and in the parallel giant slalom,  as well as medals in mogul. Nobody could have imagined, we’d win in skeleton, since we have never won in it”, – said Alexander Zhukov.
