croydon. mark of one boston. and slightly brahimi age over the past decade or so it has become harder for i.x. to compete in the top european tournament with homegrown players being lured away by ritual leagues but the talent factory never stops producing excellent footballers we're fairly proud when you see players from us playing all over the world and that makes it really feel good but there's always this sort of sadness and that we think that if the players would be with us one or two more years then they would even be better if they don't leave when they're seventeen eighteen but leave when they're twenty five we can develop them very good so it's good for the player and at least we have to let them go and that's no problem but we want to stay there we want them to stick along the way the club the traditions at the famed academy remain the same as they have been since the late ninety's sixty's when the dutch created the concept of total football i extract have to keep their way of
playing football recognizable attractive offensive minded and fast and always using three forward so the young where is already accustomed to they are you. have to establish a new club in south africa a nine hundred ninety nine the amsterdam outfit have set their sights on russia as a training camp using the best dutch coaches will be held next summer twenty kilometers west of moscow with the prospect of opening a permanent i execute them in russia i'm a really big football fan and born in amsterdam next to the extent of the him so it was a unique opportunity to get here and start this football academy the population of the netherlands is around seventy million people just twelve million more than the russian capital moscow but the dutch can boast dozens of top class footballers dozens of top class food eating and. have already proved dutch coaches

to learn from. just how do a mention how the game should be but also. what kind of people are there. spoken a lot together and i think the way to where that how to work with and. it was really i think it's a question of didn't each other that i think that the main point was that we have confidence loops is originally from just one side judy has been involved in coding for most of his life and was more than happy to give a master class to russia's up and coming generation there's not much he misses about home because he spends around half the year in his native switzerland and he's continuing to go from strength to strength in his adopted country will contend with helping russia with the first european women's curling gold since two thousand and six thomas lives is a really busy preparing the next generation of the countries of the swiss only bit
of a job for around six months or so he's enjoyed fantastic results and it's all bodes well for the sochi two thousand and fourteen olympics just round the corner the big trip the european championships more very important is in reality a warm up to two thousand and fourteen soccer lympics the win will only heightened expectations but russia can get a first ever limpid curling medal when the lifts doesn't feel any extra pressure pressure is wrong because pleasure means always. will be. afraid to execute no though not a little i'm proud of the team first of all well but real regional gold that's one thing even when people get probably force a no medal ok people wouldn't be too happy. but i see the progressively misdoing curling is continuing to gain in popularity within russia with new rings popping up around the country while the men's team on the same level as for women's at the moment things could change with continued investment how many generation already
have plans to compete at the highest level by teenagers kareena and that level but i just have to say. that. they can't. just let it it's always very interesting to hear things. less it's great to have a. sense of this person such a high level the next test for the senior squad will be the two thousand and thirteen world championships in riga in march but they'll look to build on their success at the europeans however the future is looking very bright as curling continues to develop in russia which are boldly tarty moscow. time now for short break a state change apart to cease. yes. p.v.t.
welcome back to part two of the sports show now following this summer's triumph of the london olympics some of russia's top make gymnasts held a special show class in moscow where fans met their idols and learned a few tricks michael craft janko reports. at this summer's london olympics rushes you again you come over was again the understated star of the rhythmic gymnastics arena winning the individual gold medal for a record breaking second straight games that it took silver while russia also claimed gold in the all round team event in a competition the country has dominated for the last twelve years but unlike many other sports the stars that lead the way are often secluded from the public and inaccessible to young fans something this inaugural event aims to stop those who question the but of course this show class is a fantastic thing firstly develop in our sport for the kids it's simple and real to
see their idols and stars of the fallen and trying to teach them what we know sure not talk of it will stick but will try to teach them the best we can ironically rhythmic gymnastics has a more artistic approach than even artistic gymnastics itself combining elements of ballet gymnastics and dance while competitors perform with the hoop ball clubs and ribbon during their routines the sport demands an extremely light and flexible body meaning girls between the ages of fifteen and twenty three are the ones that usually excel many enthusiastic braved the minus twenty celsius conditions to get a chance to finally see the limbic stars up close. and a few former gymnasts showed off their skills allowing some keen sense to mimic the every move so with the inaugural new year show class in rhythmic gymnastics it's no surprise that it's been a hit among young and aspiring gymnasts but also one of the first of what she thinks all the girls to be able to meet their idols up close and possibly even get
an autograph. but it's not only the fans that are taking full advantage of the up close interaction the stars themselves often kept away from the public eye to focus on training and preparation are also only too happy to provide tips and inspiration to anybody youngster yours i'm really enjoying the fact that they all like me that they remember me there's nothing more onerous than children i see the drive and determination in their shining eyes so i haven't a lot of fun being here although this first ever show class was probably more of a meet and greet than a full on workshop it's hoped it will serve to improve youngsters as well as further promote the sport across the country even if we had to let it go in my view where these kinds of bands i stream are helpful and need to be held more often because these girls watch and see and it's inspirational to them i remember given a girl and not a graph a while back and them four years later she was performing with me so it does mean
the world to them it's not often that you see massive vents with both sides stars and fans alike seen equally thrilled to meet each other yet with such a wealth of been susie hasn't matched the already evident talent in the country this all bodes well for russia's chances of continuing success in rhythmic gymnastics at real twenty sixteen and beyond mark of genco r.t. moscow. two fighting talk in two thousand and five won a u.f.c. crown four years later and defeat to. started a spiralling decline now twelve years after his last fight in moscow the belarusian was back but father nan has more. skills are proved in victory but courage and heart are put to the test and defeat
under lawsky has known it all claimed the ultimate fighting championship crown in two thousand and five and being considered one of the best heavyweights in m.m.a. reaching his pinnacle in two thousand and nine when he took on the great brother a million girls. and facing into a stadium knockout. the downward spiral had begun and continued with three more hard to fit. most experts in found thought the man known as pit bull was down. i lost a lot of hope i told him so yeah fell down for me. i was on a couple mountains on top of the world and they wanted me to know that became the thing i should know why then and after a while last fall fired some back in the eye or lost the right he shook my hand to settle it just to get a good fight that. music is a best flat out just
a good fight that i was like ok let's all. this wise like you give me ma it's whatever it means give me gave him land that is your. friend that this is where heart and courage come to the poor and a lot has since been unbeaten in five bouts including the latest victory over merican in my case it was yet another comeback the first bell in moscow for the bill are in twelve years and he marked the kitchen with a pre-fight masa plans to my family and my friends and as they gave me a good meal out the franchise they gave me. is a game in a park. belief in myself for one strong. had a stroke of hope the right people the right that you made so most of the poor have read jepson entre made it very far without having some basic techniques that you.
leave later on here. but is very shortly here very hard here to change you just like i think so he has all the tools and he's just a matter of getting the right ation. arlovski he's only thirty three now still far from old or heavyweight still hungry and trained by one of the best coaches in the business but it totally but here you are a station. or a c three kings he was almost he claims he's changed a lot on his road to redemption his training his lifestyle his mind though he spent almost an hour with the fans posing for photos and signing posters some things never change and i'll follow it with my mind like my friends
a great one there that's why i still. wish i was this one here right here with my dream under all ski goes on although he's already passed his toughest test. robert for an unknown r.t. i'm moving on to the italian alps and the big name rock fest skiing event where a local favorite took the title from star hall the ted ligety untinged a record top prize climb gray reports. thousands of spectators packed the pegan l.-a ski resort in trentino as twenty olympic stars began the four round competition of giant slalom various obstacles along the course including an audi beneath the jump while rock bands pumped out their hits last year's winner and hot favorite ted ligety was fastest in all the rounds but to the crowd surprise crashed out on his final run they went ashore and he made one little mistake so that's
about it so i guess i guess sometimes it's just somebody else wants. you know i'm really glad it's not. that left a way clear for other big names with norwegian olympic super g. champion aksel and spindle putting himself in contention though he was picked by local star luke alibrandi me but it was compatriot davida simone chello who out of the crowds posting the best time in the final rounds to clinch the title his first victory of any kind for almost seven years. ok very yeah there's a morning but imagine that the person between laughter. is i believe. i'd like to push. every. i mean. with the straw feel with. the present. so as the italian champion
look forward to christmas seventy thousand euros better off the upper a ski party really began up in the peaks of the italian alps colin bray r.t. . and finally to sochi where russia's speed skaters have been testing the ice and the organizers have been signing up new sponsors as russia prepares to host their first winter olympics michael has the latest. well it's only four in ten days now until the start of the sortie twenty fourteen winter olympic games and of course preparations are well underway the latest event to be held at the i spoke skating palace one of the specifically built venues for the games was the russian short track speed skating championships is the first time russia's speed skaters got to try out what will eventually be the battleground on which they'll hope to win their first ever medal in the short track events russia has traditionally specialized in the long track form of the sport and being on home ice at twenty fourteen could
offer the best chance of finally ending the short track medal drought foreman says have been good so far this year with russia's vladimir gregorio managing to briefly set up an unofficial world record during a pre-season competition in calgary. every single team member has succeeded and personally hoping to qualify for the five hundred and one thousand meter races plus there is plenty to be confident about where breaking world records so it will be simply depend on how good the ice is and our overall fitness levels now russia has an ace up its sleeve recruiting three time gold medal winner and five time overall world champion victor from south korea after he fell out with the south korean skating association although on fail to qualify for the twenty ten vancouver games he's since been training in russia after obtaining russian citizenship in order to compete in what's likely to be his last olympic foray at the sochi games.
because i don't have any specific goals for sorts here other than we do in a gold medal that's the only goal for any pics but in the run up to the games i'll be using the various international and domestic events to get myself better prepared meanwhile russia's coach frenchman sebastian cross is quietly confident his team can get a result from the upcoming world championships and is hoping for a podium finishes in sochi we had few actually it's already a whole different. from the beginning of so. so we hope and we try to make that they will be in good shape for the next worker here in sochi and therefore for watching when she. retired gets played them for sure and back here in moscow such organizing committees president dmitry chernyshenko was on hand yet again to sign another partnership deal with a major sponsor bringing the total sponsorship for the winter olympics to a record high amount of the contract signed by this the sixth seed in one point

moscow. and that's all the sports news i think. deadly rivals some decades. if good fifteen thousand people killing each other in any other country there would be diplomats there would be mediators. self-imposed out costs from society i will cut myself chemical attack my brother understand my going to come out immediately i am going to eventually attack the cops of my anger and my frustration the. judge well into the territory.
