[스포츠]Victor Ahn refutes controversy over receiving Olympic medal pension, “I donated everything”

Short track legends Ahn Hyeon-soo and Victor Ahn explained the controversial pension payment process during the recent Seongnam City Hall coach application process.

In 2011, when he became a naturalized Russian citizen, he initially thought that dual citizenship was possible, but after realizing that it was not a special case, he decided to naturalize after much thought.

In July 2011, everything was decided and proceeded, but it was misinformed in Korea as if I received a pension first in July and decided to naturalize in August.

In addition, he explained that the Olympic medal pension he received as a lump sum was donated to children in need of heart surgery and junior players in need of rehabilitation and treatment.

Victor Ahn said that he was cautious about appearing in the media after naturalization, and said he would humbly accept criticism for choosing naturalization and speak out as much as possible so that misunderstandings do not accumulate.
