Ilya Ilin to study Kaplan English courses in London

Ilya Ilin, the double Olympic weightlifting champion from Kazakhstan, who broke two world records at the London Olympiad, will be returning to study Kaplan English courses in London.

Ilya has now enrolled at the Covent Garden language school in a 10 week long general course consisting of a semi-intensive program which will focus on improving his reading, writing, listening and speaking skills. Ilya acknowledges that "English is something that you must know. It can open new doors for friendships and professional connections".

The Kazakhstani athlete achieved his greatest professional success at the London 2012 Olympic Games. Ilya won a gold medal in the men's 94kg category with a world record total of 418kg. His final lift of 233kg in clean and jerk category is the current world record. He was the only Olympic weightlifter to retain their title from Beijing. Last year he was awarded best Asian athlete by the Olympic Council of Asia.
