Newly appointed Russian mens 8 coach, Mike Spraklen gives an exclusive interview to Martin Cross.
Mike Spraklen says
You have to believe you can achieve.
We have another 2-3 months and certainly we will find more speed
I have a passion for the guys. Rowers are the same the world over and you want to help them – it motivates me.
Spraklen is a specialist coach for mens eights and has delivered multiple Olympic medals for countries from Canada to the UK and USA from his methods.
Russia will surely be a force to be reckoned with as their performance in the European Champs showed – coming second to GBR in the repecharge and stepping up to win a silver behind defending Olympic title holders, Germany in the final.
Expect more from these guys as the Spraklen magic starts to work for them.
