Conditions for Ukrainian athletes at Winter Olympics are excellent
Ukrainian Youth and Sports Minister Ihor Zhdanov has said that winning even one medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, will be success for the Ukrainian team.
"We won seven medals at the previous six Winter Olympics, of which only two gold medals. Of course, we are optimistic. We will support all athletes, but we should pay special attention to biathlon and freestyle skiing. I think that winning even one medal will be a success for our team. If we win two, it will be wonderful," he told Interfax-Ukraine in Kyiv on Friday.
Zhdanov noted that according to Head of the National Olympic Committee of Ukraine Serhiy Bubka, the organization and conditions for athletes at the 2018 Winter Olympics are perhaps the best in history.
He said that he planned to visit the second part of the Olympics from February 16 to 25.
The Winter Olympic Games are held in Pyeongchang from February 9 to February 25.
