The secretary general, Serghei Legheida, and vice-president of Triathlon Federation of the Republic of Moldova, Tatiana Valachi, completed the four-day program and received first-degree triathlon coach certificates. “The course consisted of four theoretical blocks and an exam at the end of each block. Participants learned about the theoretical program and passed some exams online, for example, the World Anti-Doping Agency exam. The whole course was held in English”, says Tatiana Valachi.
All participants were divided into three groups, and each group was led by professional triathlon coaches, who have raised many generations of triathlon olympic champions. Here are some of them: Claudia Beristain, Peter Clifford, Alexander Kochetkov - Triathlon Federation of Republic of Lithuania vice-president, who previously held a seminary for technical experts and event-managers of International Triathlon Union.
