He is also accused of providing false information during the athlete’s departure from the Olympic village,” he said.

Moisevic’s coaching qualifications will be suspended until February 2029.

Tsimanoskaya will represent Belarus in athletics in Tokyo in 2021.

She participated in the Olympics, but instead of returning to Belarus, she chose to go into exile in Poland.

It all started when coach Moisevic instructed Tszymanouskaya,

whose main event was the 100m and 200m, to “compete in the 1,600m relay.”

In response, Chimanouskaya posted a post on social media (SNS) criticizing officials of the Belarusian track and field team.

After checking the post, Coach Moisevic ordered Tsimanoskaya to ‘forced departure’.

“Everything was decided suddenly,” Tsimanoskaya said.

“I left the athletes’ village 40 minutes after being told to return to Belarus,” she recalled.

She had already received a message from her grandmother in Belarus telling her to “never return here.”

Tsimanoskaya was at Haneda Airport in Japan. After arriving, I showed my wits.

There was a Belarusian official right next to me,

but I asked the Japanese police at the airport to ‘let me get away from them’ using a mobile phone translator.

With the help of Japanese police, Tszymanouskaya arrived in Poland via Vienna, Austria.

Currently, Tszymanowskaya is representing Poland in international competitions.
