Lokomotiv Kharkiv became the national champions of Ukraine for the 16th time in their history. But, for the first time in the playoff finals, VK Dnipro Dnipropetrovsk provided tough resistance to Yurii Filippov’s protégés 3-2 (25-27, 18-25, 25-22, 25-21, 15-12).



Unlike the first two matches in series held in Kharkiv (both ended 3-0 in favor of Lokomotiv), as hosts, Dnipro gave hard time to the champions, helped by recovered captain Vitalii Bondar. Lokomotiv were unable to impose their game and were trailing 2-0 in sets.

But, Lokomotiv’s players showed to have big heart, made a turnaround and took the gold medal in the 25th Ukrainian Championship by prevailing in the tie-break.
