Ukrainian Olympic athletes experience range of emotions
Ten of the 16 scheduled days at the Rio Olympic Games are already over.
Things are not going as well for the Ukrainian athletes as they would have liked – only six medals in the bag, including just one gold, and some fourth of fifth positions. Whether a case of nerves, bad luck, not being good enough or biased judges, the tally, so far, isn't impressive.
And hence, the Ukrainian athletes at the Olympic Games in Rio are experiencing a range of emotions. Some are ecstatic to win a medal, while others are unhappy even with a silver. There are also those who are disappointed at coming so close to the winners' podium, but going back home empty-handed, and finally there are some just enjoying the moment and what they have managed to achieve with hard work.
