Anastasiya Vaskevich, a student of Grodno school No.20, clinched the champion title in the 200m medley event. “I am happy with the result. Anastasiya has qualified for the European championships and set a new junior record for Belarus,” coach of the Belarusian national junior swimming team Alexander Gordiyenko said.
The Czech player eased to the first set only for former world number one Victoria Azarenka to respond by winning five straight games to take the second. Karolina Pliskova held her nerve before breaking serve to win the match.
“Following a poor start of the Belarusian national team at the 2018 IIHF World Championship, the Belarusian Ice Hockey Federation and head coach Dave Lewis took a joint decision on the need for another specialist to head the team,” the federation said.
