Alexandra Gerasimenya and Yevgeny TsurkinBelarus’ number one swimmer, Alexandra Gerasimenya, has clocked 24.98 seconds in the 50m freestyle, taking gold, and has also won the 100m freestyle. Meanwhile, Yevgeny Tsurkin has claimed gold in the 50m butterfly and silver in the 100m butterfly. Both qualify for a license A to the 2016 Rio Games.

Bronze went to Nikita Tsmyg, who renewed Belarus’ record in the 200m backstroke, and to Alina Zmushko, in the 50m breaststroke.

The Belarusian national swimming team is soon to take part in the Belarusian Open Swimming Championship in Brest, from April 14th-18th. The tournament is a licensed event of the International Swimming Federation for the 2016 Olympics and, as such, will attract the globe’s strongest contenders. Among them are Pavel Sankovich and Svetlana Khokhlova (now training in the USA).

The national team is also gearing up for the FINA World Championship, due to take place in Kazan, between July 24th and August 9th.
