1 year ago 0

It’s what the Belarusians were waiting for at 500 m distance. It’s what was failed at 1000 m. Ignat Golovatsiuk brought the gold medal to Belarus!

The tribunes are crazy shouting: “Be-la-rus!” Mass Start Men and the victory of the Belarusian athlete are finishing the championship. The silver medal was taken by Marcin Bachanek , the  speed skater from Poland. The third place was taken by Jeroen Janissen from the Netherlands.

“I was worried a little as I promised myself to finish the season on a major note, with a gold medal – and I managed to do it, – the Belarusian speed skater Ignat Golovatsiuk smiles. – For now I’m planning to relax as I need energy to start the next season. My goal is the World Cup”.

Ignat names 1000 m his top distance.  In this race he won a silver medal, leaving behind the Japanese athlete Tatsuya Shinama with 0.07 second. In 500 m Golovatsiuk won the silver medal too.

Aliaksei Kirpichnik finished the 13th and took the bronze medal in 10000 m.
