Sergei Beloglazov

I’ve just arrived back from a week in Singapore on business and had the chance to train with Sergei Beloglazov. In short he is one of the best freestyle wrestlers there was, and one of the top coaches at the moment. He won two olympic gold medals, and 6 world championship golds to name a few of his accolades. Sergei is now the national wrestling coach for the Wrestling Federation of Singapore (WFS) while their athletes prepare for regional comps such as the SEA Games this year, and the Youth Olympic Games in 2010.

Thanks to Jimmy Taenaka who is the vice president of the WFS who has allowed me to train with the team and with Sergei. Jimmy is one of the biggest supporters of wrestling in Singapore and he should take a lot of the credit for the quick rise of wrestling in Singapore. He’s one of the nicest and most genuine people I have met.

My work will see me travelling to Singapore a few more times this year, so am looking forward to more training with the Singaporean national team and Sergei and his coaching staff.
