"We are happy to take this opportunity to help our favorite sport grow around the world and in countries where winter sports have huge potential,” added Darya Domracheva, the four-time Olympic champion.
When asked on the possibility for Belarus to host big sport events, Svein Arne Hansen said that it was highly possible. The country's bid to host the 2024 European Athletics Championships is among the strongest bids.
The National Olympic Committee cited the Belarusian Freestyle Skiing Federation as saying that the athlete's contract with the national team expired on 31 August. After that Anton Kushnir confirmed his intention to work in Kazakhstan.
Belarus' Krystsina Tsimanouskaya, who represented Team Europe in the women's 200m at the Europe v USA Match, hopes that such track and field matches will not be left to history and will become a good tradition.
The Belarusian athlete highlighted that she was happy with her performance. Even though the Match Europe v USA is not the main event of the season and a greater focus is on the preparation for the IAAF World Championships in Doha, the athlete took the competition in Minsk very seriously.
