Sixty-Year-Old Ukrainian Volleyball Player Returns To Paralympics

Ukraine has sent its largest-ever contingent of athletes to the Paralympic Games. With 155 Paralympians competing in 14 different disciplines in Rio de Janeiro, Ukraine hopes it can top its fourth-place finish at the 2012 London Paralympics. At age 60, Petro Ostrynskiy is his country's oldest Paralympian. Before heading to Rio, he and Ukraine's men's sitting volleyball team shared their hopes of bringing home a medal.
