Belarusians win 22 medals at U15&U17 European Weightlifting Championships

Belarusian youth weightlifters returned to Belarus on August 9 bringing 22 medals from Sweden’s Landskrona, which hosted the U15&U17 European Weightlifting Championships. Belarusians set there 13 records.

Only boys won gold, while girls’ highest place was second. One of the best weightlifters in Team Belarus was Konstantin Kurovsky.

Konstantin Kurovsky, European weightlifting champion (youth):
I accomplished what I wanted. I am pleased to set 9 European records.

Mikhail Rabikovsky, senior reserve coach of the Belarusian weightlifting team:
I would like to thank all athletes for every kilogram they lifted. Everyone did very-very well, at a decent level. Some even exceeded expectations and lifted more than they did during nationwide competitions.
