Olympic champion Cheban revealed why sheathed paddle

Two-time Olympic champion in Canoeing Yuri Cheban told about the reasons of your career.

This was the Olympic champion in London 2012 and Rio 2016 in rowing on a canoe on a distance of 200 meters said in an interview Sport.ua.

«The distance of 200 meters at the Olympics will be canceled. It is already approved official: remains the single canoe 1,000 metres and two at 1000 yards. The distance of 200 meters, is added in women’s Canoeing. So while the men’s sprint in the world died. Think it’s unfair for the sport. Should make the distance of 500 meters, to be able to go 200 meters. The sprinters, then gave up the backside, even giving a chance to prepare for the distance of 500 meters,» — said Cheban.

«This was the main reason for the end of his career. I could try to prepare for the distance of 1000 meters, but I’m not 18 years old. At 500 meters, I think I would have the strength, but the distance is twice as long requires a different preparation. Especially because I’m on 500-metrovke was in the prize-winners at the Olympic games in Beijing,» — said Ukrainian champion.

We will remind, in December 30-year Cheban was appointed chief coach of the national team of Ukraine in rowing and Canoeing.
