Olympic Gold for Dzinara Alimbekova

What a wonderful success story!  A few years ago Dzinara Alimbekova was training for Biathlon at the Chausy Regional School of Sport (formerly called the Chausy Orphanage) and Canadian Aid for Chernobyl helped out, buying her first set of professional ski equipment. This week she achieved gold at the Pyeongchang Olympics with 3 team-mates in the 4 x 6km relay event.

One of her teachers from the school posted this picture with the caption “Dzinara stepped from the school threshold to the Olympic Podium. Proud!” (translated from Russian)
