Not five, and six Luge will represent Ukraine at the Winter Olympics, which will be held from 9 to 25 February in Pyeongchang.

Our team received a second license in a women’s single sled, so pack your bags for the Games in 2018 can not only Elena Stetskiv, but her namesake and compatriot 24-year-old from Lvov Shumova. This was announced on Monday the official website of the National Olympic Committee of Ukraine. Note that both women already have behind shoulders experience of performances in Sochi in 2014.

Recall that initially, at the end of the Olympic qualification, which lasted from November to mid-December 2017 and included five stages of the world Cup, the Ukrainian team earned three quotas: two male and one female (in sledges). License the pair we received through the team relay, in which the rules can be any team, which is qualified in all three categories or two, but earned extra quota for the rating of world Cup in the relay, as in the case of Ukraine.

Quite a bit was lacking in our team, in order to win a second Olympic license in sledges among women. Elena Shumova took the last passage 28 th place, and Elena Stetskiv was the first in line. But given the results at the January world cups in königssee and Oberhof coaching Council when approving the composition for the Olympic games 2018 (the license was not registered) has made a choice in favor of a more stable, which is especially important for relays, up Stetskiv

19 Jan Elena Stetskiv along with teammates (deuce Alexander Obolonya and Roman Zacharkiw, as well as exposed in sledges Andrew Manziel and Anton Docucam) received the Olympic shape in the center of ekipirovochnom NOC in Kiev, then went to the Latvian Sigulda, where our team had to spend the last inspection before the Games in 2018 in the framework of the European championship.

It was there over the weekend representatives of the International Luge Federation (FIL) announced good news to the senior coach of the national team of Ukraine Taras Hercule. As explained to us in Department of the Luge with the relevant Ministry, the Ukrainian national team has moved one of the quota released due to the fact that the international Olympic Committee (IOC) is not included in the list of athletes invited to participate in the Olympics 2018 Russia Tatyana Ivanova and Victoria Demchenko.

In the next few days Elena Shumova will get the Olympic uniform in the center of ekipirovochnom NOC in Kiev and fly to Pyeongchang. Note that the Luge one of the first to enter the fight for the medals of the Olympic games-2018.
