The Ukrainian is preparing the American national team in gymnastics for the World Cup
Ukrainian specialist Andrei Stepanchenko is preparing the US team in artistic gymnastics for the World Cup, which will be held in Qatar from October 25 to November 3, writes Voice of America.
The US team in the world rankings held at 4-5 place. The leaders of the team are from China, Japan and Russia. Over 2012-2016, American athletes won 14 medals at the World Championships, which is the most successful period in US history.
Stepanchenko has been living in America for many years. He worked as a trainer in a private gymnastics club in Chicago. In 2015 and 2016, he was recognized as the best coach in the USA. For six years he worked as an assistant coach, and in 2017, he became the head coach of the basic US gymnastics training center.
His duties included controlling all aspects of the USOTC Resident Team Program men's program, working on the daily development of athletes, the formation of training plans and the calendar of competitions.
“I went to America to make my gymnastic coaching dream come true and work with top athletes,” Stepanchenko recalls.
Athletes say that they like to work with a Ukrainian, and call him a professional, which are few today.
Before moving to the United States, Andrey Stepanchenko lived in Kamenskoye (formerly Dneprodzerzhinsk) and played for the Ukrainian team at the world championships. In 1994, he won a bronze medal as part of the Ukrainian team, at the World Championships, in which Ukraine participated as an independent state, the first “bronze” in the treasury of the Ukrainian team.
