Dima Kulagin was predictably appointed the captain of the team. He has leadership skills and clout in the team. On the one hand, he is young. On the other hand, he is quite experienced. Our choice means that we believe in Dima’s potential not only as a player on the court but also as a person outside the court. I’m sure he will unite the team and lead it to our set goals.

To be honest, being the captain is a heavy responsibility for me. I know that it’s going to be hard. Of course it’s a challenge for me. To be the top in everything: on the offensive end, in the locker room, to set the example. I won’t hesitate to ask for the coach’s or older players’ advice and pay heed to it. And of course I hope for support of our big Lokofamily!
