MOSCOW, September 16 /TASS/. Viktor Ahn, a six-time short track Olympic champion, will make few appearances at competitions this winter and will use the forthcoming season for psychological and physical rehabilitation necessary for effective training for the 2018 Olympics, Alexey Kravtsov, the head of the Russian Skating Union, told TASS on Wednesday.

Ahn would miss the World Cup’s first stage to be held in Montreal, Canada, from October 30 to November 1.

"He will make few appearances in the forthcoming season. We decided to do that to enable him to rehabilitate psychologically and physically in the first place. Our task is to train him for the 2018 Olympics as well as possible," Kravtsov explained.

"A decision if he is going to perform next season will be made by the coaching staff. I find it hard to say when his first start is going to take place this season. These decisions will be made in the focus of preparations for the Olympic Games," Kravtsov added.
