The Soviet Union frequently used corporal punishment training their athletes. Nadia Comaneci, the gymnast, is a good example. In her biography she describes several times being spanked by her coach.

Are there other similar videos ?

That makes sense. I vaguely remember seeing similar videos with martial arts and swimming coaches

Actually, when I was a kid, I was a part of the sparring team for my Tae Kwon Do school and my sensei would actually get after us with a thin yellow plastic whiffle ball bat if we were slacking off during training. He wouldn't hit hard, but he would swat us on the butt with it and it definitely kept you from slacking off! This was in Alabama in the mid 2000s, so not that long ago.
