We are glad to share the photos from the Open Powerlifting Championship of Crimea, where participated Vladimir Tihostup.
Thanks to the efforts of the founders of the fund CHARITYMAY, Vladimir received the help with preparation for championship, transfer to place and accommodations with the aim to win the championship, which he has achieved and as a result.
It is worth telling that Vladimir successfully graduated from the Kiev Regional Boarding School for Physical Culture and Sport. And he is a multiple winner of the Ukrainian and international competitions in the Greco-Roman (French) and free (English) wrestling. At the moment, Vladimir is still the champion of Ukraine among the juniors and silver medalist of World Junior Powerlifting Championships. Also has a certificate of master of sports of international class (Powerlifting is a strength sport involves lifting weights).
In attached documents, except photos from the tournament, you can find the sport biography Vladimir and calendar of competitions of powerlifting in 2011. Vladimir wants to take part in December 2011 in Ukrainian powerlifting cup among men and Ukrainian Championship among students. In order to participate into this he needs equipment and vitamins for preperation. But since he is from low income family and because of scarcity of state funding he is unable to do it by himself. If someone else has a chance to help an athlete please inform the contact the Fund.
Also Vladimir Tihostup promised to visit orphanages with the Fund and to teach the boys how to train properly and show the boys a few tricks in wrestling.
