Last week, members of the Russian national team have been training at Badminton Europe’s Centre of Excellence (CoE) ahead of the European Mixed Team Championships.

Vladimir Malkov and Ekatrina Bolotova have joined up with players from the CoE for the week prior to the event in Copenhagen.

- We have used a break in our tournament schedule to improve our badminton level, Malkov said.
