Yurii Dmytrenko from Poltava fought on the front in the 54th separate reconnaissance battalion. Rendering cover to his combat sworn brothers, Yurii received a severe wound and lost his leg. However, this twist of fate did not put him out of his stride. Yurii took up cross-fit, participated in different kinds of sporting events (in particular, “Games of Heroes”) and his humorous flesh-mob “My new leg” became a big hit on social networks.
Currently, Yurii is living in Kyiv but yesterday he visited his native town to support the project “Winners-2” and to take part in Poltava semi-marathon.
You can learn more about the reconnaissance man and his participation in this sports event in the publication of “Poltavshchyna Sport” edition.
