Ukraine’s athletes won two medals at the 2014 Artistic Gymnastics World Championships

The last competition day of the 2014 Artistic Gymnastics World Championships in Nanning, China, brought two medals for Ukraine’s team. Oleh Verniaev repeated his success from 2014 European Championship winning gold medal at the parallel bars, while 2012 Olympic bronze medalist in vault Ihor Radivilov took advantage of his signature apparatus winning silver medal.

Ukraine's NOC President Sergey Bubka sent his greetings to both gymnasts saying, 'Ukraine is proud of its exceptional traditions in artistic gymnastics. New generation carries on the traditions of Larysa Latynina, Borys Shakhlin, Nina Botcharova, Lilia Podkopaeva, Valery Gontcharov and many others.

What Oleh Verniaev has done on Sunday is even more important because of the fact that his gold medal is first for Ukraine since 2006 in this sport at the World Championships. I congratulate both athletes as well as his coaches and the whole team! Thanks for bringing fame and joy to the nation!'
