Prize Winners of the Games of the XXIX Olympiad in Beijing

On July 24, 2010 the Ministry of Communications and Informatization of the Republic of Belarus issues a souvenir sheet highlighting the “Prize winners of the XXIX Olympiad in Beijing”. The souvenir sheet is designed by Aleksey Nikolaevaskiy.

The games of the XXIX Olympiad were held in Beijing, China on August 8-24, 2008 with Belarus coming up with 181 athletes who took part in 26 events.

On June 2010 the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne resolved to repudiate the charges of doping against Vadim Devyatovskiy and Ivan Tsikhan and to return to them the silver and bronze medals won at the Olympiad in Beijing.
After the Court resolution the Belarus team took the 15th place among 204 countries that participated in the Games. 30 Belarus athletes won 19 medals: 4 gold, 5 silver and 10 bronze.
