President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that Salo is the best doping. The words of the head of state results in March.
Speaking about nutrition for athletes, Lukashenka noted that nutritionists do not always follow the diet of athletes. “How are they going to perform? This is not normal. Fat you need to keep on the world Cup in the fridge, a normal piece of bacon so you can after the start of the race, a hard workout, a piece of bacon and black Belarusian bread to eat instead of the donuts and ice cream. Bacon here is the best Belarusian doping,” — said the Belarusian leader.
In December 2017 Lukashenko said that sanctions should apply to those athletes who were caught doping. About Russian athletes, he said, “not caught — Not a thief.”
Because of the doping scandal, the Russian team missed the Olympic games-2018. Instead, South Korea went to the team “Olympic athletes of Russia”, which has won 17 medals, including two gold, six silver and nine bronze medals. Athletes from Belarus became the owners of two gold and one silver medal.
