Short track star ‘Victor Ahn’, who has been at the center of controversy for the past 10 years, is now aiming to return to Korea.
Ahn Hyun-soo, who emerged as the emperor of short track after winning three gold medals at the 2006 Torino Olympics, gave up his Korean nationality and became a naturalized Russian citizen in 2011, changing his name to Viktor Ahn.슬롯사이트
Afterwards, he won another three gold medals at the Olympics held in Sochi, Russia in 2014. After failing to participate in the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics, he ended his life in Russia and coached the Chinese national team, the host country, during the Beijing Olympics last year.
And in less than a year, this time, I applied for the coach position of the Seongnam City Hall team, pushing for a return to Korea, and I had an interview yesterday.
When asked by reporters, “What do you think about domestic public opinion being so bad?”
[Victor Ahn: I don’t think there’s anything else to say, and I’ll answer when the opportunity arises.]
After being disciplined in Korea, coach Kim Seon-tae, who led the Chinese team at the Beijing Olympics, also applied for the coaching position at Seongnam City Hall. Successful applicants will be announced at the end of this month.
Seongnam City Hall is home to the women’s national team players Choi Min-jung and Kim Gil-li.
