Kazakhstan native won gold in the national team of Belarus at 2018 Olympic games

The first were the Belarus national team at the relay race at the Olympics, where Dinara Alimbekova performed.

Gold was won by the national team of Belarus where Karaganda native Dinara Alimbekova performed. Also, Nadezhda Skaedino, Irina Krivko and Dariya Domracheva became Olympic champions. Athletes from Belarus overcame the distance within an hour 12 minutes and 3.4 seconds and made nine misses at the eight firing lines, Vesti.kz reports.

The team from Sweden won silver (+ 10.7 seconds, 12 misses), and France won bronze (+17.6, 14 misses).

The women’s team of Kazakhstan in biathlon left without medals in the 4x6-kilometer relay race at the 2018 Olympics games in PyeongChang (South Korea).  

Such athletes as Galina Vishnevskaya, Olga Poltoraninza, Alina Raikova and Dariya Klimina represented Kazakhstan in the race. Vishnevskaya was the first who entered the track for whom the relay race was not successful from the beginning. The biathlon athlete felt twice in the start. At the two firing lines she made three misses.

As a result, Kazakhstan biathletes ranked 14th place after nine misses at the fourth rounds with a penalty one (with a 14.6-second lag from the winners).

That was the last race for Kazakhstan biathletes. Thus, they completed their performances at the 2018 Winter Olympic games without medals.
