It will come as no surprise that Alexander Nikonorov has been headhunted by the Chinese. The post on the Chinese Federation site says he is coaching the 2020 team in the beautiful 1000 Islands resort in southern China. Alexander often paddled at Longridge Canoe Club and we wish him every success in his new role.
