Belarusian athletes claimed medals across a long list of disciplines, including cycling, shooting, rowing, gymnastics, table tennis and wrestling. In fact, the event has been among the richest in terms of medals for our sportsmen, who took 10 of 25 possible.

On a single day, our gymnasts performed brilliantly in their group exercises: Ksenia Cheldyshkina, Anna Dudenkova, Maria Kadobina, Valeria Pishchelina and Arina Tsitsilina won gold for the clubs and balls. The leader of Belarus’ national calisthenics team, Melitina Stanuyta, confirmed her supremacy, capturing three personal medals: silver for the ball event, and bronze medals for her exercises with hoop and clubs).
