The sculpture named “the Olympian” is set near the field-and-track show ring in Sumy, northeastern Ukraine, 112 Ukraine TV channel reports.

Its prototype is one of the most distinguished athletes of Sumy region, Volodymyr Holubnychyi, four-time Olympic champion; however, Holubnychyi himself says “the Olympian” doesn’t look like him.  

Lenin’s bronze statue in Sumy was destroyed by local activists in 2014, within widely supported de-communization policy.
