Belarusians took 13th gold medal in last canoeing race


4 teams were almost equal and struggled for the winning in the men’s canoe fours at 500 meters. But Belarusians – Ruslan Sazanavets, Siarhei Pryvolkin, Yury Mazanavich and Yauheni Tsenhel won the 13th gold medal at the last 50 meters. The second were Piotr Kuleta, Mateusz Kaminski, Joshua Projetzki and Mihal Kudla (Poland). Vitatalii Pokotylo, Volodymyr Borodulko, Artem Balandin, Dmytro Zagnii losed only 2 hunderedth seconds to the silver medalists.

Ruslan Sazanavets pointed that the team expected higher result and per second to the finish he had a thought that there were some meters to the third place. We confidently came to the victory. The race was complicated by wind but it made our achievement greater. Yury Mazanavich told us that after the race he would like the best of all to hug his mom.

Not only Belarusians were glad to the victory but also Ukrainians were satisfied with their results. Despite time-lag from our four was very small anyway they were happy:”It’s my first championship of such high level and to take medal at such prestigious competition is great. We are not disappointed with such result but when you lose a couple of hundredths seconds its shame”. Ukrainian sportsmen promised ti train better to take gold next year.
