I want to report that today I am the senior trainer of the female national team of Ukraine. The action, which was proposed by the Federation is not satisfied with me as a coach.

I want to grow, to develop, but due to the fact that many of the athletes are individually training with personal trainers, I see no opportunity for self-realization. So I decided to write this post and to give an opportunity to this role other professionals” – quoted Prokunina portal

The termination of cooperation with our team – the decision of Andrew Prokunina to which we are sympathetic.

And if the male is already a certainty, that the female national team, the questions remain until the second half of April. We decided to have more trust in our professionals and in the coaching staff, and service group. Therefore, we will gradually stop the practice of inviting foreign specialists
