Ahn will take over the job from former Chinese Shorttrack Champion Meng Wang and joins a number of retired Winter Olympic champions to coach Chinese athletes in this Winter Olympic cycle where China will host its first Olympic Winter Games.
Ahn won 3 Gold medals (total 4 medals) at the Olympic Winter Games as Hyun-Soo Ahn for Korea in 2006 in Torino.
