Lukashenka's son to take part in Snow Sniper biathlon event March 3-4


Mikalai Lukashenka will take part in the biathlon tournament titled 'Snow Sniper' in Raubicy near Minsk on March 3-4. To qualify, he won a regional qualification for juniors aged 13-14.

The national finals with 168 young athletes participating was initially scheduled for 24-25 February but was postponed due to harsh freezing temperatures.

Like his father, Mikalai Lukashenka likes to play hockey. Aliaksandr Lukashenka announced recently that since last August Mikalai had shown a great interest in biathlon. Belarus' Olympic champion Darya Domracheva was an inspiration for his son, the president said.
