On Friday, biathletes have had some rest; however, Day 8 of the Winter Olympics appeared to be quite interesting. Ukraine still walks the distance with no medals in the pocket. 

On the other hand, Vladyslav Geraskevych, the young Ukrainian skeleton performer, showed some promise. Figure skater Yaroslav Paniot performed beyond all possible levels of failure, finishing last in the standings.     

Ukraine's national team

19-year-old skeletonist Vladyslav Geraskevych showed the best result so far in the entire Ukrainian team at this Olympics. He managed to make it into final race, where he finished 12th after all attempts. This is, after all, a nice debut for the young athlete and the debutant of Olympics. The gold went to Souk Korea's Yun Sung Bin, the silver award went to Russia's Nikita Tregubov, and British Dome Parsons claimed bronze medal. 

Yaroslav Paniot, the figure skater from Ukraine was extremely unlucky in his short program. He failed in every jump element and thus failed the event completely, finishing 30th of 30 competitors.

Oleksiy Krasovsky and Andriy Orlyk finished 84th and 86th respectively in the 15-km freestyle skiing event. Swiss Dario Cologna won gold; the silver went to Simen Krueger from Norway. Russian Denis Spivtsov won bronze. 

In other sports and events, Ukrainians did not perform on Friday.
