MINSK, 10 January (BelTA) – The Belarusian Athletics Federation honored the best athletes of the year during the annual Athletics Award ceremony in Minsk on 9 January, BelTA has learned.

This year the federation faced a very difficult choice, Chairman of the Belarusian Athletics Federation Vadim Devyatovsky noted. “People voted with their hearts. The nominees included very strong athletes and it was extremely difficult to select only one of them. The Athletics Award is an important award for athletes, because it gives them motivation and recognizes their achievements,” he said. Vadim Devyatovsky said that he hopes that Team Belarus will do their best at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Belarus Sports and Tourism Minister Sergei Kovalchuk also took part in the awards ceremony.

Tatsiana Khaladovich (javelin) and Maksim Nedasekau (high jump) were crowned the best track and field athletes of 2019 among adults. Maksim Nedasekau also received the award in the junior category.
