Semin visits the orphanage in Krasnoyarsk along with the local hockey team Sokol (Hawk). Sept. 2, 2010
Сергей Кузавков, the field reporter, starts the video. He talks about the gifts and souvenirs. Next you can see Semin's first Coach, Александр Глазков, who is now an 'Honored Coach of Russia'. Glazkov says that these gifts are not a formality, but from the bottom of their hearts. Glazkov is saying that Sasha Semin has learned what the kids needed to participate in the athletics and has purchased those exact items.
Валерий Кузовов is the president of HC Sokol, the team that takes care of orphanage.
Then Semin did a Q&A session with orphans. They mostly asked how much time Alex spends to train, how old he was when he stepped on ice for the first time, and how he managed athletics and school when he was a kid.
Semin: "Somehow I managed it, don't remember details, school in the morning, training in the evening... But I wasn't getting 'F's for sure." (laughs)
At the end Semin says, "I think a lot of them participate in athletics. It's not important what kind, my understanding soccer is the most popular. I think they were interested to meet a member of team Russia and hopefully it will be positive for them."
Alex Semin leaves to the States on Sept 13 to start his preseason training with the Washington Capitals.
