Ukraine already gets 187 Olympic licenses

As of the end of June, Ukrainian athletes got 187 Olympic licenses, having exceeded all expectations of the Youth and Sports Ministry.

Ihor Zhdanov, the Youth and Sports Minister of Ukraine, said this in a commentary to an Ukrinform correspondent in Poland.

"The organizing committee previously set the task to get 180 licenses for participating in the Olympic Games [in Rio de Janeiro]. Ukrainian athletes have already gained 187 licenses, and this process is not completed yet," Zhdanov said.

Summer Olympics 2016 will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on August 5-21, 2016.
