His is one of the great stories in our (short) history. In 2o22 Vitalik left his family and his town in Ukraine to live in Austin with his cousin, Maria, Coach Alon’s partner. He got tossed in to the deep end of American culture, enrolling at McCallum HS in Austin with limited experience speaking English and none living in Texas.
Another thing in which he lacked experience: water polo. So it’s been a delight to see how quickly he has picked up the game in his relatively short period of time here in Central Texas. He’s a great addition to our club both as an athlete and a teammate.
вітаю тебе Віталіку!
