Yep, another Ilya Ilyin video that needs a translation.
And another one with his coach Toyshan Bektemirov (Тойшан Бектемиров)
Here is the Google translate:
Julia Nakonechnaya: in the program “Exclusive”, our guest, a personal trainer Ilya Ilyin – Toyshan Bektemirov. Welcome Toyshan. First of all we want to congratulate you, with such a bright victory Ilya Ilyin. Please tell us all about exceptional talent Ilyin, or is it luck and good fortune?
Toyshan Bektemirov: I’ll say this. First, of course, the case in Elijah himself. He is a talented and capable athlete. He likes to raise the bar. As he says himself – is his favorite work. Secondly, in terms of success or luck. This could be true, if he won the first time. And what if this would have been his rivals are weak. But, as it starting in 2005, all the world championships is always the first, it can not be called an accident. This is of course his work.
JN: You were head and shoulders above the Russians. Forced training, or do you follow the plan, and your plan work?TB: Well, of course we have been preparing hard for this Olympics, crossed trained. Elijah had to prove. A lot of people believed and hoped for it, the same President and all the leaders, all waiting for the two time Olympic champion. But there were many people who did not believe. And there were those who bothered him in training. So we had to prove. (Apparently Toyshan is mind, the conflict with the old Elijah coaching staff). But in the end we were stronger, of course, and it was visible. I’ll tell you the advantage to 9 kg – an advantage on two heads taller.
JN: What was our strength?
TB: The force was in preparation. In the strength of Ilia. He is such a competitor that he is always ahead of the schedule. You can call it a “trick” or secret Ilyin. What we plan is not written with my colleague Erzhas Baltaev (second coach Ilya Ilyin) – it always ahead of the schedule.
JN: I can not argue you on how you react to the statements of some Russian officials, the “not correct” Ilya Ilyin wins. (These are the words of the Minister of Sport of Russia – Vitaly Mutko). What do you think about this?
TB: I do not understand why they say that. I could understand if it was not properly executed exercise. If Elijah had made a “boosting”, and it counted the judge. What could challenge them. But all attempts Ilya worked very clean. We are particularly attentive to this issue, after the World Cup in Paris. As you remember there Ilya not count the third approach in the snatch with 184 kg. We were then also the error in the push. Then boom “rocked” after lifting. This year we have worked on these errors carefully. We worked it over the bar after latching lift. And I think, at the Olympics, we’ve done your job so that nowhere reproach.
JN: So he deserved the victory?
TB: He deservedly won. Well then you can challenge? He lifted it. He did it.
JN: Can they say so because they envy, or do you think?
TB: Well, at the weightlifters Russians, not a single gold medal. They are certainly hoping for a category 94 kg. They showed not a bad result. But they did not work. I do not know, it could be jealousy or something some other reason. Well, I heard them charge us of doping. But we passed the doping control. All clear.
JN: So you won confidence?
TB: Yes, sure. Just have to work. They just needed more lift.
JN: And do our weightlifters, a weapon? . Here, for example, the great weightlifter Yuri Vlasov said – “there is not a weapon. You only need to work, work, work … “.
TB: He is absolutely right. Yuri Vlasov told the truth. You just need to work. What could be the secret weapon in weight lifting? You have to train and work hard.
JN: Weightlifters great people. And ordinary people think, and I think the same way that you probably eat a lot. Ilya Ilyin eat much?
TB: Actually, it is not much. But he doesn’t eat enough. He eats as much as he needs. In January this year, we went to Germany for rehabilitation. And consulted with the German doctors in sports training. With their nutritionists. And they tell us we have painted a clear timetable. How many and what Ilya should consume daily calorie intake. We tried to stick with it.
JN: But he is a lover of food?
TB: No, he do not like to eat. He sticks to the diet. He is not fried, it is not greasy. He has all the jam. For a couple. But it was not always so. He has improved every year his diet.
YN: Illya is all praise to the skies. But if he has no such wealth with which you fight, but he can not win? Maybe he likes to sleep a lot or a sweet tooth?
TB: My opinion is no ideal people. Each has its own disadvantage. Ilya for the ideal. He wants to be first everywhere. He wants to develop in all. And in the diet, and in training, and learning we strive for the ideal. Now he wants to learn languages. Perhaps his only negative, he loves sweets. We control each other in this. Though I am a coach, I also observe mode. If we find the wrapper, in training, we spend the whole investigation. (Laughs). But of course he admits. I reproach him for it.
JN: What should I do that would be a great athlete?
TB: You have to train. And you have to love exercise. Carry out the plan. Listen to coaches.
JN: Ilya Ilyin coped with the “star disease”? Or that Ilya never had?
TB: Ilya has not changed. It is the same. He’s as good, open, sociable. He can talk on a par with the janitor and the Minister. He does not matter a person’s status. He is always open to all people. He is photographed with everybody who approaches him. He always gives his autograph. If “star disease” and he had, then perhaps it was long ago. When he started, in 2005-2006. When he first started winning.
JN: You have set several records?
TB: In this competition, we have set three records. One Olympic and two world records. 233 kg and 418 kg is a colossal achievement. I think they will long to act.
JN: What were your feelings after you have managed to set three records at once.
TB: It is not possible to describe in words. Everything inside is lit and burns. A lot of fun. W e with Ilya long dreamed of this. I know Ilya from 2005 to 2008, we have been talking about these records. He once attempted to have these records in 2006 in Santo Domingo.
JN: Ilyina many supported in preparation. It was you, Talgat Ermigiyaev. Tell us about the people who helped you.
TB: They helped us a lot. All are countless. But I would also like to note the President. When we had some problems (about the conflict with the management of the Weightlifting Federation). The president had already said that Ilya won the Olympics in London. It speaks of his confidence.
JN: How did you meet with Ilya. How did you become his personal trainer.
TB: Well, we used to be friends. We even practiced some time together. Spoke at the event. I am over it for 4 years. We have been friends since 2005. And in January 2011, he called me and told me, “You will be my coach.” Certainly in the course of our friendship, we talked a lot. We discussed a lot of the training process. We talked about the training system. And I think he realized that I come to the role of coach.
JN: And before that you were engaged in coaching?
TB: No, before that I was a coach in weightlifting. I was a fitness trainer. Among heavily atlotov Ilya my first student (laughs).
