— Hello, Dima!
— Hello, Vadim!
— You know, I have just watched a TV programme about the history of Ukrainian sports. I have heard a lot of amazing facts there!
— I do not think there is much amazing in Ukrainian sports. We are still a very young country.
— Yes, out we have a lot of young and talented athletes. By the way, when Ukraine participated in the Olympic Games for the first time as an independent country, a young Ukrainian figure skater Oksana Bayul brougnt Ukraine the first gold medal.
— I know that. As for me, I am fond of football. Unfortunately, our team does not have the European Holders’ Cup.
— But we had it twice, in 1975 and in 1986! I am sure other football victories are still waiting for us. We have famous football players, A. Shevchenko, for example.
— That’s true. I am also proud of Y. Klotchkova, a famous world champion. She has several world records.
— I know one more Ukrainian sportsman, who has 35 world records.
— Who is he?
— S. Bubka. And I am sure he is not the last one.
— You know, I agree with you!
