According to the press service of Ukraine’s National Olympic Committee, an extra Olympic license went to epee fencer Olga Leleyko. The reason is that Israel did not use its quota for participation in epee events. According to the respective international rating, Olga Leleyko was placed next to Israeli sportswoman Dalila Hatouel, which allowed her to perform at the 2016 Summer Olympics. Thus, the Ukrainian squad will consist of 206 athletes at the approaching Games.
