“Because the exercise load is extra, you are feeling the affect. I hope the crew will peak by the Olympics and we is not going to have any points. We now have acquired the boys, however we have now to watch out about accidents. There’s sufficient time. I take a month to get again my health, however everyone is totally different. Everyone is match, however we have now to watch out in order that nobody will get injured. If one thing main occurs, it takes away six to eight months which may be very dangerous.”
