From childhood, Vladimir Mikhailovich was part of the family, a mentor to me. He was always there for the difficult and happy moments of my life.
Vladimir Mikhailovich was not only a coach, but also a father to many athletes. He raised champions, strong in spirit, believed in young guys and helped them find their way in life.
I ask for your prayers for Vladimir. My most sincere condolences to the family and friends of Vladimir Mikhailovich.
