<He has also been a successful coach; first in the 1980’s with Maia Chiburdanidze, who won three world titles, and then in 2002 he had another major success with Ruslan Ponomariov, who became the 16th World Champion.
Kuzmin was a member of the Soviet team which won the gold in the 1974 Olympiad. At the same competition he won a bronze medal for the third best individual score at board six.
