Popov Takes Up Gymnastics

Sep 7, 2000

Alexandre Popov has reportedly been getting some training help from former Russian gymnast Andrei Kravtsov.

The Russian sprinter took up some gymnastics on the advice of his coach Gennadi Touretski as a way to cope with stress as well as help to build strength.

Kravtsov has been living and competing for Australia for the past few years. However he will not be competing in the Olympics and was unable to compete in the Olympic Trials due to a torn right achilles tendon.
