Vitaly Laletin is preparing very hard and diligently for the second stage of the Top-8. What inspires him to such preparation? What does the athlete work in the gym? ()
Vitaly, although you are no longer drive a lot, what was your longest trip?
- One of the most distant was a trip to Moscow. I drove to China to. Now I drive too, but not on very long distances, a maximum of 1000 kilometers.
What new things would you like to learn?
- Well, I can do so much, so I never thought about it. I would like to learn English, of course. And probably do not want anything else.
Are you equal in strength with Dmitry Silaev? Do you think sparrings with him help you develop better?
- Let me say, Dmitry was stronger than me before Zloty Tur last year, but I couldn’t test my strength with him, because I was preparing for the Worlds, and I had no time to train for fight with him, more precisely, I have no opportunity. But at the moment I am stronger than him on the right and left hand. In general, yes, training with Dmitry is very helpful. He is a very strong opponent, very powerful. And it is a bit uncomfortable for me, so it’s only fun to fight with him.
