Ukraine’s gymnasts will fight for the medals on the uneven bars and horizontal bar. Oleg Verniaiev will perform in both disciplines.

Dmitry Tymchenko will take vengeance on for Belenyuk’s defeat in Greco-Roman wrestling in the weight category up to 98 kg, competing in the quarterfinals with a Hungarian Balazh Kish.
