Retrieved from

Valeria Nikiforets and Bohdana Primak are not only old friends and participants of the "Velyki Perehony", but also real beauties, who were chosen "Miss Lviv" in different years. Valeria won a beauty contest in 2009, and later became one of the organizers of this competition. Bohdana received the title of the most beautiful girl in Lviv in 2012.

Valeria was the first to advertise the castings of the "Velyki Perehony". The girl immediately realized that this incredible project is exactly what she needs. "I liked this show, because my life is very similar to racing: I travel a lot, I'm in a hurry all the time, I constantly get into some force majeure situations," says Valeria. It is necessary to take part in the "Great Race".

The girls were convinced that physically their team was the weakest, but the iron will and the all-encompassing desire to win kept them from giving up.

Valeria and Bohdan prove that beautiful appearance, fragility, discipline and intelligence can be combined and become the basis of a strong team.

"We have always believed in each other, and it gave us strength. Trust the people close to you. Dream together, and make those dreams come true," the girls advise all viewers of the "Velyki Perehony".[1]
