From the 6th to the 18th of October, the 3rd Summer Youth Olympic Games is taking place in Buenos Aires City of Argentina. The Ukrainian national team at the competition is represented by 55 athletes in 22 sports. Among them - the first-year student of Cherkasy Institute of Fire Safety named after Chornobyl Heroes Ivan Tyshchenko, who on October 10 with a brilliant result has got a gold medal in boat racing. In the final race among male singles Ivan did not leave any chance to the opponents from Australia, Belarus, Peru, and finished first.
The personal skills and sport abilities of the student of CIFS impressed the Institute's staff even when he made introductory tests at an educational institution. An organized, purposeful and conscious boy immediately drew the attention of the teachers who will continue to make the best efforts to support him in the desire to achieve the highest results.
We are proud that the student of educational institution of the SESU system has become a credit of Ukrainian sport in the international arena and we wish to Ivan Tyshchenko new victories!
