Vladimir was born in Novistrana where he became one of the world’s first male rhythmic gymnasts.
Like all 80s kids, he was so busy being told how special he was that he didn’t get that went for everybody else, too. Now he’s a little sad that he’s not more important.
Since retiring from the sport he has become a gymnastics coach and career counselor. His mantra is, “if you don’t set the bar too high you will never be disappointed”. His biggest accomplishment to date is being able to correctly use “Your” and “You’re”.
As a gymnastics coach he has been able to get the gymnasts to “stay centered” and “squeeze”. Many of his other corrections are in a mix of english, Novistranian and pig latin.
