Unbeaten record by Sergei Bubka
Famous sportsman was born in the Ukrainian cityLugansk in 1963, on December, 4th. Parents Sergei Bubka by profession had no relation to sports. Father, Nazar Vasilievich, worked in the Armed Forces of the Soviet Union (ensign), and the mother of the champion, Valentina Mikhailovna, worked in a polyclinic. But his brother, Vasily, who is 3 years older than the champion, also engaged in pole vaulting and even took second place in 1986 at the European Championship. Sergei Bubka did not intend to beat his brother and in 1997 left professional sports.
Sergey Bubka's record
The great champion came into the sport at the age of 15. With jumps, he was introduced by a friend who showed him how the poles train. Perhaps intuition prompted Sergei that this is exactly what he should give all his energy and time. His coach was a talented athlete Petrov VA, who correctly calculated the potential of the future champion.
In addition to sports titles, he was awarded the title"Hero of Ukraine", and also became an honorary citizen of Lugansk and Donetsk, Sergei Bubka. The champion's record did not go unnoticed by foreign connoisseurs of sports achievements. So, in 2008 the Academy of World Sports "Laureus" awarded Sergey Nazarovich with the prize and the title of the best athlete on the globe among men. Also the champion received the award of the Prince of Asturias in Spain in 1991 and other awards from Belarus, Slovakia, Italy and other countries.
The world record of Sergei Bubka (35 jumps) wasis listed (as the most numerous) in the Guinness book. During the lifetime of the sportsman a monument was erected in Donetsk (1999). Now a talented record holder leads a successful business, under his leadership operates a bakery, a production company of office supplies, a number of shops and gas stations, and he has a stake in one of the largest financial organizations in Ukraine.
