It was initiated by Belarusian athletes from the voluntary project Dreams Come True. Famous swimmer Alyaksandra Herasimenya was among them. She conducted a swimming master class for children.
“I am very glad. I saw our visitors’ eyes; they were interested in what was going to happen. People wanted to take part in any competition. I wish more people came here and gave us advice on what to improve,” Alyaksandra Herasimenya shared her impressions.
She also took part in the 30m dash where men had to run with girls sitting on their shoulders.
The next festival is going to be held in six months.
