After the Olympics

Artemov immigrated to the United States in 1990, settling in Pennsylvania. However, he has mistakenly been identified as the father of current US gymnast Alexander (Sasha) Artemev. The two men are not related. Artemov currently lives in San Antonio, TX where he runs a gym with his wife Natalia.
