int“You can look back with pride on 30 years of progress and incredible sporting success. Who better personifies this success story than the president of the NOC of Ukraine and his predecessor, Olympic champions Serhiy Bubka and Valeriy Borzov. The powerful partnership that we have today in the IOC with Ukraine is possible only thanks to the important work of the NOC. Under the great leadership of Serhiy Bubka, the NOC of Ukraine popularizes the role of sport in society and spreads Olympic values, friendship and solidarity throughout the country,” said Thomas Bach said in his welcoming speech to Ukrainian sportsmen.
During the years of independence of Ukraine and the existence of the NOC, the olympians from Ukraine have won 122 medals, 97 at the Junior Games and 98 at the European.
