Alyaksandr Lukashenka has called Belarus national Olympic team’s performance at the 2018 Winter Olympic Games ‘a horrible failure’. “People may wonder what we are spending money on,” he noted when meeting the Bank of Development CEO Siarhei Rumas.  The latter is also the head of the Belarusian Football Federation. The situation in the Belarusian football is also a failure, Lukashenka added.

Team Belarus is yet to win a single medal at the PyeongChang Olympics. Darya Domracheva has not come up to meet expectations in biathlon. There is still a chance to win medals in freestyle.
