Alexy Bilozerchev leaves Ohio State

The Gymblog picked Alexy Bilozerchev as one of 12 up and coming gymnasts to watch in 2009.

If he turns out to be half as good as his father / coach, Dmitri Bilozerchev, that was a good call.

Yet in one of the strangest gymnastics stories of 2009, Alexy walked out on his teammates at Ohio State at the start of the season. (That’s about the worst thing you can do in the NCAA.)


International Gymnast posted an article stating that Bilozertchev “remains focused on upcoming national and international opportunities,” which includes next month’s Winter Cup. Bilozertchev mentioned some “unresolved issues” at Ohio State, but didn’t elaborate. He continues to train under his father with the OSU Boys Club Team, and he will compete at Winter Cup in a separate session than the Ohio State men’s team.

His Dad continues to coach both OSU and Alexy — separately — at a club.
