Chelikhova Nadejda

Chelikhova Nadejda, 57, like most of the rest of Russia's coaching contingent has a vast experience in Volleyball. Following an education where he graduated with a master of sports, Nadejda played for the CSKA Volleyball club, collecting the national title many times and two gold medals at the European Champion's Cup.

At the tender age of 19 he first tried his hand at coaching at the CSKA Children's Sports School. It wasn't long before he was granted a title of the Honored Coach of Russia.

For eight years he was the second coach of the CSKA women's team and the second coach of the CSKA team for preparing reserves. He also worked as an assistant coach to V. Yuriev and V. Bardok of the national Girls Under 20 team.

Since December 2002 Nadejda has been working with the Girls U18 team with his assistant coach V. Kirianov.

The team looks to be in impressive form having won their qualification tournament before finishing fourth at 2003 European Championship in Croatia.
