S. Korea's Olympic short track champion to continue career in Russia
South Korean short track speed skater Ahn Hyun-soo, a three-time Olympic gold medalist, will leave for Russia this month to continue his career, the skater's father said Tuesday.
Ahn Ki-won said the 25-year-old short tracker will stay in Russia for a year, "to study and to regroup" after several difficult past years. The junior Ahn is scheduled to depart after the South Korean national team trials this weekend. Even if Ahn performs well in the trials, he won't join the South Korean national team and will still travel to Russia.
