Azerbaijan team head coach Vladimir Tukmakov in his interview given to extratime.az told that during the training which are carried out in Zagulba the team tried to find the right balance between chess, sports and relax.

"It's clear that we can'y solve all the chess problems as we don't have enough time before the Olympiad. It is quite clear, but we do try to do it though. We apart from it we relax a bit, go in for sports, create a normal working team spirit. Our team prefers table tennis".

Tukmakov, however didn't tell who is the best tennis player. "This question is quite a secret. We always argue on that so I will not share my opinion with you".

Tukmakov didn't tell who is going to play on each table in the Olympic team. Tukmakov explained that "It will only be clear during the captains' meeting before the first round".

The head coach also rememebered the last European Championship when well known favorites showed a very poor result and the winner was the team ranked ten - "Everything is possible during the Olympiad... However if you talk about the forecasts before the game, I am sure that the Russian team is always a favorite. After that I can name the teams of Armenia and Ukraine. The followers are quite numerous and they can affect the prize share or even fight for gold medals. Among them is our team and some other ones".
