Additional information

COLLEGE EXPERIENCE
"Attending Kansas University in the United States has been a truly unique experience that I will never forget. Coach Andy KOKHANOVSKY (university throws coach and Ukrainian Olympian at discus) not only coached my discus but also helped guide me from a goofy teen to a goofy adult." (Athlete, Nov 2017)


QUEENSLAND POWER
