‘If anyone told me ten days ago that I’d win bronze, I’d be upset because I was in good shape back then. If anyone told me that three days ago – I’d not believe it because I caught a cold at my last training session here in Brazil. I took medicine, antibiotics, and when I performed in the qualifying round, I still haven’t fully recovered at the time. The disease affected me and my performance, but it’s the Olympics, after all, and they are held once in four years, so I had to struggle. I’m fine with my medal, I did my best today’, Bohdan Bondarenko said.

As 112 International reported, Ukraine’s bronze holder came third in his respective event in the Summer Olympic Games in Rio.
