London Olympic Gold medalist in high jump, Anna Chicherova revieled that she has a conflict with her coach and that they for some unknown reasons stopped comunicating.
"If my coach is tired from working with me, we somehow will have to try to solve this issue. More likely he has some complains about me, but I have some grievances as well. We have not comunicated to each other, so our problem stays with no solution." told 30 year old Russian high-jumper.
The coach and athletes relationship came in spot light last year when Chicherova set a new Russian record by clearing 2.07 at the national championships. After that feat, Zagorulko is reported to have said: "Now I can die happy".

Chicherova admits problems with her health:"I am about to head off to Israel to the Dead Sea for a mud cure," she said. "I have got to help my body rest. Then I shall gently embark on some physical preparation. As for the winter season, I would prefer to skip it so as to give my body time to repair itself. I regard the winter season as a time for recovery and rehabilitation. Everything is geared towards the 2013 summer season."
