The country’s delegation is made up of 12 boys and seven girls and will be led by Vasily Yurchik, the head of international relations at the National Olympic Committee of the Republic of Belarus.
It includes biathletes Konstantin Baburov, Andrey Gavrosh, Daria Kabisheva, Julia Kovalevskaya, Artyom Krylenko and Victoria Shashkova, and Alpine skier Maxim Davydovsky.
Also on the team are speed skaters Barbara Bandarina, Andrey German, Maxim Fyodorov and Karina Shipulina, as well as cross-country skiers Daria Mayorova, Anna Machekhina, Mikhail Morozov and Gleb Shackel.
Daniil Karpovich, Ilya Korzun, Andrey Murashko and Yang Shostak are set to compete in 3x3 ice hockey.
