Ukraine at the Beijing Olympics 2008

Kleber how did that Ukrainian swimmer do in his semifinal heat?

I just watched women's rowing, Ukraine came in 2nd behind an unstoppable China. Russia and Canada sucked it up pretty bad behind them.

Cool. Probably have a chance to medal in rythmic gymnastics and synchronized swimming or something like that, right? What about track & field?
