  • Little Known Fact

    On this day before Thanksgiving, I present you with a little known fact. How many of you know Sergey Bubka's brother's name? Very good if you said Vasily Bubka. Today (Wednesday) is Vasily's 48th birthday. He was born three years before Sergey. Happy Thanksgiving.

    Little known? Depends where you ask it. Around here, Clarence DeMar's brother is little-known but not Sergey Bubka's.

      First in history to jump 19' in a meet and not win (losing to his brother).

      His son is currently a 5.40 vaulter.

        Sergey Bubka's son, Sergey Bubka, Jr., is the third ranked tennis player in Ukraine.

          except, as noted on the board before, Junior is usually transliterated as Sergei.

          Indeed, Dad's Wiki entry calls him Sergey and his son Sergei!

          (of course at one point senior's passport said "Serguei".... ahh, the wonderful world of transliteration)

          Wiki also notes the proper transliteration from Ukrainian (the Sergey/Sergei stuff is from Russian) would be Serhiy.
