BGV Charity Fund becomes general partner for “Strong Ukraine” competition for the second time

On May 11, the Ukrainian city of Khmelnytskyi hosted the third stage of the second nationwide adaptive sports competition among veterans and the military, called "Strong Ukraine."

For the second time, the BGV Charity Fund provided financial support for the event organized by the Strongman Federation of Ukraine. World strongman champion Vasyl Virastiuk oversaw the competitions as a primary judge.

The event gathered 100 participants, including those with prosthetic limbs, competing in four adaptive disciplines: rowing on a machine, bench press, aero bike, and kettlebell lifting.


"Strong Ukraine" is a nationwide adaptive sports competition for veterans and active-duty military personnel who have sustained injuries (visible and invisible) during combat operations in Ukraine. The competitions first took place in 2023 and are part of the sports rehabilitation system for war veterans, supported by the Strongman Federation of Ukraine and benefactors.
