The maximum result at the Games in Tokyo is a  matter of the athlete’s responsibility to the country.  Today the Olympic committee discussed the medal prospects and development of the Belarusian sport. The highest attention is paid to the summer Olympic Games.  Almost all the world championships this season have already been completed. Our athletes won a total of eight awards, two of which are gold.  The main hopes at the main start of the four-year period are connected with rowers and pentathletes. A lot has been done for the sport of high achievements in the country because the results of athletes are the image of the country. Organizational issues were also solved today. 

Viktor Lukashenko was elected to the post of the First Vice President of the National Olympic Committee.  His candidacy was supported by the participants of the meeting.

Today, our legendary athletes were commended.  Ekaterina Karsten and Alexandra Gerasimenya have been in the top of the world rowing and swimming ratings for many years, and have also been at the top of the podiums of the World Championships and the Olympic Games.  For high sports achievements, as well as great services in promoting the ideals and principles of Olympism, the popularization of sports and a healthy lifestyle,  the athletes were awarded honorary badges of the NOC of Belarus. The national team has about 200 candidates representing 28 sports, who can qualify for the Olympic Games.
