Gennadiy Trukhanov: I am proud that the Ukrainian stage of Oceanman bears not only a sporting but also a social mission

Children's and charity swim took place in Odessa within the program "Oceanman". Photos

The children's swim took place on September 9, 2018 in the framework of the Ukrainian stage of the international swimming competition Oceanman Odessa - Ukraine.

For the first time in the history of international competitions, there was held a charity swim for 1 km in which 45 sportsmen took part. They swam to fulfill the dream of the 7-year-old boy Volodya from Odessa region, who has a dream to attend school, despite a serious illness. All the funds of the charity swim will go to purchase a wheelchair for Volodya.

In the children's swim "Oceanman" took part 50 young sportsmen.

For the first time the eight-year-old Odessite Maxim swam in open water. At the age of three, because of the accident, the boy had lost both legs. Last year he began to learn how to swim, and on September 9, together with the coach, he took part in the first competitions. Maxim swam a third of the distance and became a winner for himself, his mother, coach and everyone who cares about the fate of this child.

"I am glad that Odessa appeared on the map of the international movement" Oceanman ". I am proud that the Ukrainian stage is not only a sporting mission, but also a social one. I thank the organizers for the fact that our city has joined the international family of "Oceanmen" and I have no doubt that not less bright and spectacular sports events and new achievements are waiting for us, "said the Mayor of Odessa Gennadiy Trukhanov.
