Ukraine has a footballing reputation that goes back to Soviet days but that is not the limit of their sporting prowess. Perhaps the most famous Ukrainian sportsman is Serhiy Bubka, comfortably the greatest pole vaulter of all time. ‘Man of Iron’ Borys Shakhlin earned seven Olympic golds, an impressive haul though fellow gymnast Larysa Latynina won nine. Other Olympic gold medallists include 1972 100m and 200m champion Valeriy Borzov, and four-times swimming title-winner Yana Klochkova. World heavyweight boxing champions Volodymyr and Vitaliy Klytschko also hail from Ukraine.
