Ukraine at the Winter Olympics
in PyeongChang, South Korea
Ukraine will look to capitalise on Russia’s exclusion from the 23rd Olympic Winter Games when the event kicks off in PyeongChang, South Korea on 9 February. Ukraine captured its second Winter Olympic gold medal in Sochi when the women’s biathlon relay bested all comers – including the tainted Russian team. With Russian biathletes unlikely to compete in Korea, Ukraine will be looking to top its all-time best Winter Olympic medal haul of two medals. The best chances lie with the biathlon teams, led again by Kyiv’s Yuliia Dzhima. Stay tuned to What’s On for more Olympic coverage!
