Last week, the 8th Street Workout National Championship was held at the site in front of the Opera and Ballet Theatre. More than 30 participants from various Ukrainian cities and towns took part in the event.
Athletes demonstrated strength skills on uneven bars and horizontal bars. They also competed in the freestyle category where each athlete showed a 2-minute performance with acrobatic and power tricks.
“This championship has been carried out in Kharkiv for the fourth consecutive year. Participants do their best to win as the two best sportsmen will represent Ukraine at the world competitions in Germany,” notes Ivan Krylenko, the Street Workout movement leader in Kharkiv.
