"If we talk about the national team, we had two big tasks for the last season, but we reached the 50% of them.The main task was to win a ticket to Sochi, unfortunately, has not been happened. But we solved another problem, our return to the Elite Group at IHWC- said Kazakhstan Hockey Federation President Askar Mamin opening the Executive Committee meeting.- Our U18 and U20 were very well, a big disappointment come from women's teams."
