Similarly to the United States, women's basketball is also popular in Ukraine. Many women's payers have come to the United States to play collegiately. One such player is Olga Firvosa. Olga played to Kansas State Women's Basketball from 1998 to 2000 as the teams starting center. The 6'6" Firsova is a native of Kiev and currently works for Kansas State Women's Basketball as their film exchange coordinator.
While most people don't think of Kiev or Ukraine as an athletic powerhouse, both have done quite formidably in relation to other European countries in producing collegiate and professional basketball plaers.
