TOKYO, 26 July (BelTA) - Belarusian archers represented the country well in Tokyo by placing fourth in the final Women's Team protocol, the coach of the archery team Ekaterina Timofeeva commented on the results of her team, BelTA learned.
"Given that our archery team had never competed at the Olympics team tournament before, I view the fourth place as a success. Everyone is tired, because Tokyo is sweltering in heat. But the athletes did their best and performed to the top of their abilities. Of course, I wanted to see Belarusian girls on the pedestal, to hear the anthem played in their honor and our flag raised. But today the German athletes were stronger. I am happy with all my athletes. Each of them made a feasible contribution to the result," she said.
