Medal achievements and development of Belarusian sports discussed at Olympic meeting

19 November 2019
The main focus is on the Summer Olympics. Despite our outstanding results at the European Games, world rivalry is still fierce. Almost all the world championships of this season have already ended. Our athletes have won a total of eight awards, two of which are gold. High results are expected from the rowers and pentathletes. At the same time the Belarusians do not reach the prize places at the world level in a number of sports and disciplines, in which we are traditionally strong. 

Ekaterina Karsten and Aliaksandra Herasimenia for many years were in the top of the world rowing and swimming ratings, and were noted at the top of the World Championships and Olympic Games The athletes were awarded honorable badges of the NOC of Belarus 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 struggle for the place in the games in Tokyo will continue until the end of June. The national teams in water polo, football and field hockey did not get the license. Nevertheless, the national team includes 200 candidates representing 28 sports.
