Speedskater Viktor Ahn dismisses rumors about post-retirement planBy Kim Jee-min
Published : Sept. 11, 2018 - 12:00
“I have decided on my retirement earlier than I intended,” Ahn wrote in his letter. “I turned down the offer to coach the Russian national team because I had longed to continue as an athlete, rather than a coach.”
He revealed that he has no clear plans regarding his career for now.
Ahn added, “All of the speculative articles about my return to Korea are not true.”
Ahn’s retirement was first announced on Sept. 5 by Alexei Kravtsov, president of the Russian Speed Skating Union.
Ahn won three gold medals when he competed as Ahn Hyun-soo in the 2006 Winter Olympics in Turin. He was granted Russian citizenship in 2011 and won three gold medals again at the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. Ahn was barred from participating in the 2018 Pyeongchang Winter Olympics due to doping allegations.
