14:48 Belarusian skiers are 14th in the relay race

On March 2 the Belarusian men’s team (Alyaksey Іvanou, Alyaksandar Lazutkіn, Syarhey Dalіdovіch and Leanіd Karnyaenka) became 14th out of the 17 participants of the relay race of 4 km in the classical style and 10 km in the free style at the World Ski Championship in Sapporo. Belarusians became 14th after the third lap but the 19-year-old Leanid Karnyaenka who had won the silver medal in the 15 km sprint did not justify hopes.

Norway became first, Russia – second and Sweden was the third.
