Yes, the Ukraine wants to win the men's gymnastics final just like ever other team. The Ukraine employed a strategy that they believed would be effective. If it does not work, everyone wonders what they were think, however, if it works everyone thinks that they are geniuses for thinking of it.
Ukraine's move left me baffled, as well. Apparently, their focus was not on winning. No one can say why they did what they did, however. Maybe they were rebelling against the who concept of the Olympics. Perhaps they were sparing someone from getting injuries. We will not know if they do not tell us.
The odd behavior of the Ukraine men's gymnastics team indicates they are not taking the Olympic Games seriously. They must have their reasons for quitting in the middle of the final, but their vague and unsatisfactory explanations show a lack of respect for the Olympics and a disregard for fans of the sport.
They do not seem to be planning on winning. They must have some other plan in mind. They are apparently not looking to win, and there does not seem to be a clear reason why. They also do not seem to be trying to lose. Perhaps they are trying to get publicity.
