Review of Belarus' sports events (December 7-13)

Dinamo Minsk has played three games in the KHL regular season. In the home battle against the leader of the Western Conference, CSKA Moscow, The Bison were defeated 1:3. But then the club pleased their fans with two victorious away games. On Friday in Cherepovets, The White-Blues left no chances to Severstal and then outplayed Dinamo Riga.

The national futsal team entered the playoff qualification for the World Championship. Coach Vladimir Ignatik's charges took second place in qualifying group 2, based in Croatian Osijek.

Our players have experienced the whole spectrum of sports emotions. First, they defeated the hosts 7:4, then were crushed by Azerbaijan (2:7) and finally drew the game against Sweden (2:2).

The Belarusian team will learn its playoff rivals during the draw scheduled for February 12. The 2016 FIFA Futsal World Cup will take place in the autumn in Colombia.

Tsmoki Minsk suffered two defeats in the VTB United League. At home they could not cope with the Krasnoyarsk Enisey giving the guests a victory with a difference of two points. The trip to the Russian capital ended with a defeat on the hands of CSKA Moscow 48:98.

VC Minchanka earned a victory in the first game against VC Wiesbaden in the Challenge Cup last 32.  The Belarusians were able to get a victory only in the last set.

HC Brest Meshkov are now on winter holidays. The team were not able to finish the years on a positive note losing in the SEHA League to Hungarian Veszprem 25:37. Now the Brest team are in fifth in the League. The handball feast will continue in February.

The biathlon season is now underway with races held in Hochfilzen, Austria. In the women's sprint, which opened the second phase of the program, none of the Belarusians was not able to get into the top 20. Darya Domracheva, Belarus' star, is missing this season, at least its first part.

In the women's pursuit it was a bit better, with Nadezhda Skardino becoming 10th. In the similar disciplines Belarusian male biathletes did not even make it into the points zone.

Belarus' women's team were seventh in the relay in Hochfilzen, while men came in 13th.
