Uzbek boxing coaches are in great demand abroad, and a number of Uzek coaches work in national teams and clubs of other countries. The most famous of them, without a doubt, is Vladimir Shin.
Vladimir Nikolaevich was a two-time winner of the former Union Championship in his time. He also won a bronze medal at the World Cup, the World Cup, and the Spartakiad of the Peoples of the Former Soviet Union. It is through these achievements that he is one of the few boxers to have been awarded the title of “Honored Athlete of the Former Soviet Union”.
After completing his career, he achieved a number of successes in the field of coaching and was awarded the title of "Honored Coach of Uzbekistan." These days, Experienced Shin is preparing the Japanese national team for the Tokyo Olympics. We contacted him and asked him a couple of questions about the preparation process and so on.
