It became known earlier that Tsimanouskaya applied for political asylum in Poland.
As it was reported earlier, the Belarusian Sports Solidarity Foundation announced on August 1 that they wanted to take Krystsina out of Tokyo by force. The athlete urgently bought tickets and went to the airport.
It should be noted that on the eve Tsimanouskaya criticized the Belarusian authorities who announced her to the 4x400 relay without her knowledge. She was supposed to replace one of the 'dropped out' athletes, who, according to Tsimanouskaya, were just dismissed because of the officials.
The athlete stated that she was afraid to go to Minsk, since she could allegedly face a prison term.
