October 5 at 12:00 at the press center of ITAR-TASS Ural (Turgenev 13) held a press conference on the Russian championship kicked off in volleyball women's team Super League. The plans and goals for the season, the players new and old media representatives told:
Karpol Nikolai - Head Coach Volleyball Club "Uralochka-NTMK"
Estes, Eugene V. - attack volleyball club "Uralochka-NTMK"
Of course, that most journalists were interested in gathering tasks and perspectives of the team for the season 2011-2012.
- The tasks before us - to fight for a medal in the Russian championship and win a place, this problem-at least in the European Cup - said Nikolai - in the championship entering, having well-trained, so I think that our power to accomplish this task. This year marks 45 years since then, as a team "Uralochka" appears in the national championships. During these years the team won 25 times gold championships. Naturally, these gains great responsibility. "Uralochka-NTMK" is still among the favorites of the national volleyball Superleague.
The main thing is that as much as possible injuries, said Nikolai Karpol. After a team has two injured: on the eve of training at two leading athletes Love Jagodina and Alexander Pasynkova injured. Both - stretching the ankle. About a month needed to treat Yagodin. In Pasynkova injury is less serious, recovery will take less time.
Failure of the latter years, according to chief instructor is largely due to a short bench. But this season, this problem will be solved: in the off-season the team has left three people, it's also much more. Basically this is a talented volleyball youth, full of promise. For example, a volleyball player that "Uralochka" Victoria Chaplin, in the national team won bronze at the Universiade in China. A "Uralochka" Valeria Safonova and Alain Golosnova confidently made on the world championship among youth national teams in Peru. Best player of the championship of Russia 2007 Jagodina Love, who played the last two seasons for the Moscow "Dynamo" will continue his career in "Uralochka." Furthermore, Uralochka-NTMK "has signed contracts with Natalya Nazarova doigrovschitsey, Irina Zaryazhko blocking and attacking diagonal Irina Smirnova. Extend the contract with the club Ekaterinburg and central locking Maryuhnich Marina. She returned to "Uralochka" in the summer of 2010, missing a season because of the birth of his son. This season, in part, and a new libero - Catherine Tretyakov. It is the same as Maryuhnich recently became a mother.
- The problem is we have so far with binders - admitted in a conversation Nikolay Karpol - and Salina and Catherine Anastasia Rusakov still just very young. But, I'm sure they will grow and gain experience.
- The team today many talented young people - agrees with Nicholas Karpolem and team captain Eugene Estes - in the off season we had a sufficient number of charges, played friendlies in Poland, Azerbaijan and Belarus. The team now has all the familiar back Strashimira Filippov. Young girls are also slowly being drawn and sygryvayutsya.
Bulgarian volleyball Strashimira Filippov still the only footballer in the team. The quota is allowed by the Russian Volleyball Federation allows to include in another foreign athlete. During the off season some overseas volleyball team were on view in "Uralochka", but neither one of them was awarded the contract. Search, as they say, continues.
Their opening match of the season in the first team to hold Nicholas Karpolya in Nizhny Tagil, October 8 with "Torch" from the New Urengoi. Start the meeting at 17.00.
