‘I’m really happy with this award – even more than with the ones I collected previously. This is one my brightest triumphs, it overtopped all of my previous victories’, Yuriy Cheban, Ukraine’s two-time Olympic champion, said in the interview with the National Olympic Committee.

‘I stayed focused. I was on Track 8, and I saw my opponent on Track 7, but I only used peripheral vision – I did my best to stay focused. You shouldn’t distract in such moments, because you will lose focus. The best way to go was to do the same thing I’ve been practicing for a long time – this is what bears fruit’, the canoeist said in one of his first interview after claiming gold at 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio.
