For a gymnast this is the first recognition by the National Olympic Committee.

In the Olympic house was held honoring the best athletes and coaches of Ukraine in October. From the President of the National Olympic Committee of Ukraine Sergey Bubka their well-deserved awards – diplomas, commemorative statuette and cash prizes were awarded to the leaders of the modern sport of gymnastics not only in Ukraine but throughout the world – Igor Radivilov and his personal mentor Vyacheslav Lavrukhin.

“Igor is a shining example of a successful person that never rests on its laurels. We remember his “bronze” performance in London 2012. Quite a bit it was not enough to take a place on the podium in the Olympic Rio 2016, but in Brazil, our hero went down in history. In his honor, was named the element – vault The Radivilov,” – said during the ceremony Sergey Bubka.

He noted that Tokyo 2020 is not far off, and wished the talented gymnast forces, desire and energy to continue to overcome a difficult path to new Olympic heights.

Sergey Bubka noted that for its part, the NOC of Ukraine continues to be possible to support Ukrainian athletes and gymnasts in particular.

“We always closely communicate, know about the problems of our athletes and are always doing everything we can to support and help not only morally, but materially and financially. I have met and talked with the President, Secretary General of the International gymnastics Federation – have full understanding and support”, – said the main Olympian of Ukraine.

Sergey Bubka recalled that on the eve of Rio, the NOC has decided on the purchase of new gymnastic mats, and after the Games in 2016, an agreement was reached on the transfer of Ukraine’s Olympic gymnastic equipment already in use for the needs of our team. The same equipment will be available in the near future for the development of the sport, particularly in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.

“I have long dreamed about this award, perhaps, five years. Now my dream has come true. Do your best to get such rewards often,” said Igor Radivilov.
