Sergey Bubka
By Ekaterina Zhdanova-Redman
  

1     Do you like to do things you're not good at? Many people don't like to do things they're not good at. Not being able to do something well can make you feel bad. But one man named Sergey Bubka made a career from trying things he wasn't good at!
 
2     Sergey Bubka was born in Lugansk, Ukraine, in 1963. When he was a boy, he enjoyed lots of sports. He played with his older brothers and their older friends. He would always have to play extra hard against older boys. He liked playing street hockey and soccer. Even though he tried very hard, the older boys were hard to beat. But he never quit trying. He just kept trying harder.
 
3     Sergey started studying athletics in school. He knew he was going to be an athlete. He knew this because he had a strong spirit for competition. But he wasn't sure what kind of sport to choose. He tried many sports before finding something he liked. By the age of 10, Sergey found his sport: pole-vaulting.
