Belarusian biathlete Alimbekova: there was a proposal to change citizenship


SOCHI, August 27, Alexander Govorov. Belarusian biathlete Dinara Alimbekova told reporters that she received an offer to change sports citizenship. Earlier, the International Biathlon Union (IBU) suspended Russian and Belarusian athletes from competitions under its auspices and suspended the membership of the Russian Biathlon Union and the Belarusian Biathlon Federation against the backdrop of the situation in Ukraine. These decisions were made in accordance with the recommendation of the International Olympic Committee (IOC). “I had no idea to play for another country, although there were proposals. I will not say from which one. There was a proposal to change citizenship, but I did not I answered neither “no” nor “yes”. I started training in Belarus and I will not change my country to another,” Alimbekova said. On Saturday, Alimbekova won the pursuit race at the first stage of the Commonwealth Cup in summer Sochi. Russian and Belarusian biathletes compete at the tournament.
