Grodno, BelarusThe Open championship of Belarus in which took part guests from Latvia, Lietuva and Qatar was highlighted with good results in Hammer Throw by Darya Pchelnik – 72.78m and Yury Shayunou – 78.83m. Competitions were held at the Grodno Sport Centre “Neman” on 27-28 June.

In the men’s Hammer Throw a duel was planned between young Yury Shayunou and skilled Pavel Kryvitski at the Throwing stadium in Kalozhski park. Kryvitski recently won CISM in Bulgaria and was third on the European Team Championship, but domestic duels are often ended with a Shayunou victory and again it was so.

Having sent the hammer in the first attempt on 77.76, Shayunou didn’t give an opportunity for Kryvitski to take the lead. Kryvitski answered with 76.49 and could not add more. In penultimate series Shayunou went further away from his competitor with 78.73 and in the last round added 3cm more (78.76).

“I am pleased with myself,” the 22-year-old champion told, “I became for the first time the winner of the National championship also with quite a good result. Despite the heat, I managed to throw far. I hope to battle for awards at the University games, at the U-23 European championship, and then to compete at the World championship in Berlin.”

National champion Darya Pchelnik defended her title. There were no strong challengers as neither Maryia Smaliachkova, nor Volha Tsander didn’t manage to throw beyond 70m. Pchelnik surpassed at line several times - in the second attempt the hammer flew out to 72.89 which brought her first place. Maryia Smaliachkova, who was second, lagging almost four metres behind - 68.61m.

“I’m very glad to have won at home,” shared Pchelnik. “I’m happy to become the champion of the country for the third time. I wanted to throw beyond 75m, but tiredness and travels from several meetings recent has affected me. I intend to throw beyond 75m at the World Championship in Berlin.”

2004 Olympic 100m champion Yuliya Nesterenko was less successful, than she had expected. In the morning qualification she was the fastest with 11.44sec, but in the final she stumbled and Aksana Drahun became the champion with 11.48, with Hanna Bahdanovich second in 11.56, the same time as Nesterenko in third. However the the national coaches council of the Belarus Athletic Federation decided Nesterenko will be entered for the World Championships in Berlin.

Dzmitry Astrousk, second in the 2008 World Junior Championships was first in men’s Long Jump with a season’s best of 7.72m.

Natallia Kareiva from Lida became a double national champion taking the women’s 800m (2:02.75) and 1500m (4:10.31).

Ellina Zvereva double World Champion (1995, 2001) and 2000 Olympic champion won the women’s Discus Throw with 61.58m. Ahmed Dheeb from Qatar won the men’s event with 60.77m. Pavel Lyzhyn was second in men’s Discus Throw (59.63) and first in Shot Put - 20.25m.
