First gold for Team Ukraine after returning from Canada
Yevhen Oleksenko, member of Ukraine's Invictus Games team, has won gold in disabled strongman competition during the Lviv Fitness Weekend.
"There's no win without pain. We train three hours each day, but the outcome is well worth it. The next challenge I'm looking forward to is the Ukrainian Powerlifting Championship," said the strongman.
Strongman competition took place in L'viv as part of the largest fitness convention in the west of Ukraine. Oleksandr Tabanets, another Team Ukraine competitor, took home a silver medal, coming a bit shy of Yevhen's winning weight.
