“I want to inform that from this day I am not longer the Head Coach of the woman’s team of biathlon of Ukraine. The format of work suggested by the Federation of Biathlon does not fit for me, as for the coach. I want to grow, to develop myself, but because many sportswomen are on the individual schedule training program with personal coaches, so I do not see the opportunity for self-realization. That is why I decided to leave this post and to give the opportunity to realize themselves for other professionals”, - the report said.
According to president of the Biathlon Federation of Ukraine Volodymyr Brynzak, they support ‘the decision to stop working with Andrey Prokunin’.
Brynzak added that the couch council deiced to ‘trust our native experts’.
“That is why we will gradually stop inviting foreign experts. However, all the stuff issues will be decided and approved during the couch seminar, which will be held at the end of April”, - Brynzak outlined.
