Biography

Oleg Verniaiev of the Ukraine is a two-time world championships medalist on the parallel bars, claiming the world title in 2014 and a silver medal in 2015. Both years, he finished just off the all-around podium in fourth place. Verniaiev had better results at the two major European competitions in 2015, claiming all-around gold at both the European Games and European championships. He’s also been the European champion on parallel bars twice, in 2014 and 2015.

Verniaiev was a member of the Ukrainian team that finished fourth at the 2012 London Olympics in heartbreaking fashion: they initially placed third but an appeal from the Japanese team over a pommel horse score knocked Ukraine off the podium.
