‘Coldness’ of Kamila Valieva’s team toward skater ‘chilling to see,’ IOC chief says
Valieva finished in fourth place on Thursday
I see I’m not the only one to object the calluses demeanor of her coaches.
Instead of this coach with ice in her veins making the young lady feel better because of her failure, she chastised the hell out of her for making mistakes.
International Olympic Committee (IOC) president Thomas Bach said Friday he was disturbed to see the “coldness” of Russian figure skater Kamila Valieva’s coaches toward her following the athlete’s fourth-place finish during the women’s free skate.
Valieva slipped multiple times during her routine. The 15-year-old skater was clearly emotional as she finished up her routine. Her coach Eteri Tutberidze made it clear she wasn’t happy with the performance as the competitor came off the ice.
It is always been my opinion, a percentage of coaches and people involved in #Olympics and other childrens’ #oriented activities are there for their own #gratification (some #nefarious purposes), not for the betterment of the kids.
Many times their involvement are ulterior motives such as sexual molestation as we have seen in the past. I give the good coaches and medical people attached to these organizations all the credit in the world before the services they perform. The devious ones should be made to walk the plank.
I coached sports for years when my kids were growing up, and whether the team won or last, I always made them feel good. All we can ask as mentors or coaches is for the kids to do their best.
Leave the eagle at home Charlie.
