Compared to last year, the budget was cut in half.

The state coach of Ukraine in athletics Vyacheslav Tertyshnik told about the financial situation in the team.

“At the state level there is such a thing as bonuses and prize-winners of Championships of their premiums, of course, receive. After London, we once again go into battle, but unfortunately, we’re out of funding.

Compared to last year, it cut twice. So, actually, after London, we have no money.

Therefore, we hope that now will review the budget and give us something to help, because to win medals requires serious tools,” said Tertyshnik.

Earlier it was reported that Andriy Protsenko won gold at the stage of the Diamond League in Rabat, and Yulia Levchenko for the first time in his career won the European youth championship.
