Valentin Maslakov

Does anyone know about this man’s training theory and/or methods?

He seems to coach a very high number of elite Russian athletes all the way from the 100 (Gushchina, who just won the Europa Cup) through the 400hurdles (Pechonkina). I find the versatility of not only his coaching but his athletes intriguing.

Possibly I should rephrase this. Does anyone know if Maslakov or the other current Russian coaches continue to use the Soviet methodology from the 70’s+ 80’s (which I am familiar with) or have their methods evolved?
