While Moscow Dynamo United went for training camp in Belarus, Ovechkin stayed in Moscow. As he said in an interview, he planned to train with Kovalchuk under the guidance of Kovalchuk's personal trainer and join Dynamo when they would be back from Belarus.
Ovi and Kovi might also participate in hockey show and friendly game described below by our field reporter Emily:
AIF.: The sports forum will start in Moscow on July 29, 2010. This event will be attended by chief executives of the country. What will happen there, what are the goals and who is expected as guests?
Baidakov (Vice-Mayor of Moscow): The forum "Russia as a Sports Power" will be held in Moscow for the first time. We are expecting 2700 delegates: there will be professionals, leaders of the Federations, directors of sports schools, athletes, representatives of the business. The foreign delegation will be very representative, by the International Olympic Committee. The heads of 17 international sports federations have already agreed.
AIF: As far as I know, there will be the show, where the legends of hockey with meet with the state government officials?
Baidakov: This idea was born from a group of fans of the game in the Moscow and Russian government. Zhukov, Nurgaliyev, Shoigu, Fetisov will play.. The veterans of the Soviet hockey will play against them. This game will be open and friendly. For more entertainment we plan to invite Kovalchuk and Ovechkin. The game will be held before the opening of the Forum.
I am pretty sure Tyurkin will be there too.
This game has already happened today. Ovi and Kovi didn't play, but I guess they were maybe honored guests. The video report doesn't say anything about them: http://news.sportbox.ru/Vidy_sporta/Hokkej/spbvideo_Sostoyalsya-match-Legendi-hokkeya-protiv-sbornoy-pravitelistva-RF
Ovi is not available to entertain us here, but we can watch his rookie season on YouTube.
This is not truly HD because back then the hockey games were not in HD, but it's still a pretty good quality, enjoy...
