We would like to see the children understand the Olympic values, they were brought up on Olympic ideals and were interested in physical culture and sports. We would also like children to know the history of the Olympic movement of Ukraine, since we have a lot of outstanding athletes, many great events occurred in the Olympic movement of Ukraine, which had a great influence on the development of the world Olympic movement», - said Sergey Bubka.
