Ukrainian athletes won another two gold and two silver medals at the Invictus Games in Sydney. The mention appeared on the official Facebook page of the national team.

Archers Serhiy Shymchak, Andriy Usa and Maya Moskvych claimed gold in the team event. Besides, Moskvych triumphed in the individual event among novices in the female division.

Another Ukrainian archer Oleksandr Zozulyaka got silver in the individual event.

One more silver medal went to Yuriy Dmytrenko who came second in the shot-put event.
