Brest, Belarus2004 Olympic 100m champion Yuliya Nesterenko took a sprint double in the Cup of Belarus.

Nesterenko’s victories were without challenge taking the races in 100m (11.25sec) and 200m (23.21sec).
 
Yulia Leantsiuk (19.79) won the Shot Put competitions. Three women sent the hammer beyond 70m, the best was Darya Pchelnik’s 70.73. Aliaksandr Vashchyla won the men’s Hammer Throw with 79.01m.
 
“I have trained much before the start of this season, both in the gym and at the stadium. Even more training than before the Olympic Games in Athens,” confirmed Nesterenko. “The Cup was my first start in this summer season. I’m very happy with myself though it would be desirable to run faster. I think that in Oslo at the Golden League I’ll run even better than now.”

In the Shot Put, Yulia Leantsiuk was the victor with a fourth round 19.79m. Natallia Mikhnevich (Khoroneko) who was competing for the first time since returning from maternity leave acted for the first time after the birth of her child was second with 19.61m.

Darya Pchelnik from Grodno flew her hammer out to 70.73m in the first round, and in the second round sent the hammer beyond 70 metres again. Volha Tsander threw 70.27m on her fourth effort. In the last round Alena Matoshka from Minsk joined the Grodno company with a 70.09m release. Maryia Smaliachkova was fourth - 69.73m.

In the men’s Hammer Throw Valeriy Sviatokha took the lead with a first round 78.40m, and was immediately challenged by Aliaksandr Vashchyla’s 78.01m, but then on his second attempt threw 79.01m for the win.
