Former Israeli rhythmic gymnastics coach Irina Vigdorchik will coach the Russian national team. This is reported by the Israel Hayom newspaper.
According to the newspaper, Irina Vigdorchik is already in Moscow, where she signed a contract with Irina Viner, head coach of the Russian national team and president of the Russian Rhythmic Gymnastics Federation.
It is noted that given the results of Russian gymnasts at the Olympic Games in Tokyo and the championship in Bulgaria, Irina Viner decided that the Israeli coach Irina Vigdorchik would be best suited to “ restore Russia's position ''; in this sport.
It is worth noting that it was under the leadership of Irina Vigdorchik that the Israeli national gymnastics team took sixth place at the Olympic Games, and Lina Ashram won the gold medal, overtaking rivals from Russia.
< br /> According to Israel Hayom, Vigdorczyk was fired after the Olympic Games due to “strained relations with team members and ambiguous remarks.”
