11th day of Games can bring us rewards.
There will be 11 events at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro and it can bring new medals for Ukrainian team on August 16.
We pin special hopes on our rowers. Pavlo Altukhov will compete in canoe sprint in the race for 1000 meters. Then the Ukrainian pair Grischun-Todorova will perform in kayak-deuce fight in the women's race in the 500 meters.
Voloshina and Ananasova will represent Ukraine in synchronized swimming finals. Ukrainians took fourth place and have a chance of reward after qualifying competition.
Ukraine’s gymnasts will fight for the medals on the uneven bars and horizontal bar. Oleg Verniaiev will perform in both disciplines.
Dmitry Tymchenko will take vengeance on for Belenyuk’s defeat in Greco-Roman wrestling in the weight category up to 98 kg, competing in the quarterfinals with a Hungarian Balazh Kish.
