Client Reviews

Work a lot on balance and strength drills. Will be back next week

In my capacity as Technical Director of the Malaysian National Athletics programme from 1st February 2014 – 23rd December 2015 (2 Years) on behalf of the National Sports Council and Malaysia Athletic Federation, I willingly and fully support writing the following reference for Viktor S. Viktor S. was directly under my supervision and responsibility for the role of the Athletics National Horizontal Jumps coach for Malaysia (Long / Triple jump – male / female). During this 2-year period without hesitation compliment Viktor on his professionalism and commitment to his role as the National Horizontal Jumps Coach. His knowledge and expertise is at a very high standard for High Performance Jumps, combined with exceptional results to back it up. During this time all athletes under his direction had performed at personal best levels with National records being set in Triple Jump for Men – 16.84m (South East Asian Record just 14cm short of Olympic Qualifying) & Long jump for women – 6.29m. Additionally a world junior qualifier for womens triple jump to be held later in 2016. Also attaining for the 1st time, 3 female athletes to all jump over 13.00m in the history of Malaysian Triple Jump in a season. Viktor has a very pleasant personality and is genuinely passionate towards achieving the best from the athletes surrounding him. He is most courteous, respectful and speaks Malay, English & Russian. There was always a willingness to listen, learn and apply new ideas that may benefit positive outcomes. To whom it may concern, I would be extremely happy to have Viktor S. work with me if the opportunity was to come up again in the future without hesitation. Viktor would be a major asset to any athletic programme including leading a team of coaches and athletes. I wish Viktor all the very best for his future endeavors.
