Belarus Athletic Federation has a long tradition of participating in large-scale international competitions, including the Olympic Games, World and European Championships. Since 1952, when the Belarusian athletes from the USSR national team participated in the Olympic Games in Helsinki, the representatives of this country were present at all Olympics, where they won 34 medals: 6 gold, 15 silver and 13 bronze.
However, athletics as a sport appeared in Belarus much earlier – in 1913, when the “Sports Fan Circle” was created in Gomel. At the same time, the first running, jumping and throwing competitions took place. Then they started practicing this sport in Minsk, Mogilev (“Sokol” circle) and Brest (“Sports fan circle”).
At the eighth edition of the European Team Championship, Belarus also competed in League I. This time, on “Cluj Arena” announced the presence of 𝗘𝗹𝘃𝗶𝗿𝗮 𝗛𝗲𝗿𝗺𝗮𝗻 (European champion in 100 mg in 2018), 𝗧𝗮𝘁𝘀𝗶𝗮𝗻𝗮 𝗞𝗵𝗮𝗹𝗮𝗱𝗼𝘃𝗶𝗰𝗵 (continental leader at the javelin throw, in 2016) or 𝗠𝗮𝗸𝘀𝗶𝗺 𝗡𝗲𝗱𝗮𝘀𝗲𝗸𝗮𝘂 (4th place – high jump, at the last World Championships in Doha).
