After turning down offers from the two countries where he skated, South Korea and Russia, it is finally in China that world champion Viktor Ahn will act as coach. The Korean-born skater is currently in isolation in China and is preparing to sign the official contract which would include a remuneration approaching 300,000 Euros per year. There is no doubt that China is ready to go all out to see its skaters perform at the Beijing Games. Ahn and the Chinese National team were secretly negotiating since his retirement in April.

Viktor Ahn is by far the most prolific short track skater in history. He collected six Olympic gold medals and eight world champion titles during his career. He retired for good in April.
