Viktor An plans to continue his skating career at least until the Moscow championship in 2015, he told the press.

      He also wants to go on to become a coach, he added.

      Earlier, the Russian government has decided to help the six-time Olympic champion, Korean-born Viktor An, to get permanent home.

      The short track king who was behind Russia’s relay victory and scooped a personal haul of two golds, doesn’t have a residence and lives at the sport base just outside of Moscow.

      This fact runs counter to the claims made by many Western media that Russia just paid An.

      “It was the first time in my life when I was so cheered by the whole arena,” he told Sovetsky Sport earlier. He also said the 2014 Sochi Olympics were the best Games in his career.

      Once a three-time champion in his home country, he was put on the bench after an injury, a move which is believed to have deeply offended him. He then moved to Russia to prepare for the Sochi Games. You can ready our in-depth report about his career here.

      According to An, the gold in the team relay was especially important because this race crowns all the events in the short track. He was inspired by the first gold he won earlier, he added. His rivals were strong, but that only pushed more adrenaline to his head, he was quoted as saying. An is proud to have raised the level of short track to an Olympic level.
