Sergey Shishkarev: “If it was up to me, Trefilov would have been awarded the title of Hero of Russia”

27 March 2017 • Handball

The president of the Handball Federation of Russia, Sergey Shishkarev, came to us on the day when the women’s team left for the “Golden League” in France. He came of course with gifts: a golden shirt with the autographs of the Olympic champions of Rio de Janeiro, and a book – an excellent edition which is dedicated to that victory.

– Mr. Shishkarev, is it your idea to publish such a book?

– Not only mine. I conceived it together with Sergey Prigolovkin, our great commentator and journalist, a member of the Executive Committee. We did a great job in a short time and by the New Year we had already printed it. We selected photos very carefully – children’s, family, sports images. Splendid, isn’t it!? Look … It’s Katya Ilyina … one of the best playmaker and one of the most beautiful handball players in the world. And here is Vlada Bobrovnikova, Anna Sen. And so on and so forth… This is one of the best edition on sports in the last 20 years. The victory was gorgeous as well as the book is. We are very proud of it. (more…)

AFTER OLYMPIC GOLD PEOPLE FELL IN LOVE WITH HANDBALL

On 11 October the Presidential Council on Physical Culture and Sport was held in Vladimiskiy region. Among other things, you called the national Olympic handball team “15 Cinderellas”. Could you please explain why?

Obviously, the victory at the Olympic Games is a sign of a certain kind of sport dominating in the country. It is a sign of prosperity, welfare and the right development. Unfortunately, we can’t say this about handball at the moment. Our sport is not at the good level of development, but it has great potential. I keep saying that the success of our women’s team at Rio Olympics happened not “due to” but “despite of” some circumstances. (more…)
