Olympic portrait in new season of Viva Kola Art competition

Viva Kola Art and the National Olympic Committee of Belarus have held a press conference in Minsk in the run-up to the second season of the Viva Kola Art project. This project is meant to celebrate Belarusian sports and art. Artists, photographers, sculptors and designers will compete in 11 nominations.

Talented Belarusian artists will present portraits of female champions and medalists of Olympic Games.


The tradition of depicting sports in art has a long history and originated in ancient times.

“The first season aroused a genuine interest among viewers and artists, so it was decided to go for a second season and even scale it up. This year, the project will feature other sports in addition to cycling, namely biathlon, gymnastics, tennis, hockey,” noted one of the organizers, Director of Minsk Cycling Club Aleksei Ivanov.

Meanwhile, young cycling fans are looking forward to the new season of the Pershi Rovar children's and youth competition.

The event was first held two years ago and drew thousands of young cyclists. The competition has already reached the nation level, and this year the organizers promise even more interesting features.
