The ruler no longer likes hockey.
Now football is his favorite sport. Lukashenka has debunked the myth created by journalists that hockey was his favorite kind of sports. He told by he changed football boots for skates. The question about the favorite kind of sports came from the editor-in-chief of the Ukrainian newspaper Working Nespaper Anatoliy Kryvolapov at a press-conference on 21 October, udf reports.
“Why do you think that it is my favorite sport? – Lukashenka asked when answering the question on the Ice Hockey World Championship scheduled to take place in Minsk in 2014. – It is not true. Journalists should know about my favorite game. I have played football all my life. All my life. Already being a president I have played to the extent that journalists know that, Paviel Jakubovich wrote a lot about that. Back in the times of my youth I played football well. I was running on the right flank and started passing the ball to the goal, as usually, and fell on the left knee. At all this crazy speed I fell on the left knee, sprained the left leg and injured the meniscus. It all left forgotten back in the times of youth. Then I became a president. Do you remember how we gathered whole stadiums, when I became a president? We played in the Dynamo stadium with the legendary Dynamo team, that was the world’s champion. I even have a photo somewhere, I showed it to Vladimir Putin. I played in a knee-pad, but more or less well. Then it went worse. I had the knee operated on, and it is very painful for me to run. When I am running, there is a leap… I had to remember my child’s play. Do you know what kind of skates they played hockey then?
I started playing hockey. These soft movements on ice, although I had my face cut four times, then sutured etc. No one pays attention in the game to who you are. I had to do that. I like roller skating a lot, roller skiing. I ran 13 kilometers on my roller skis yesterday, then I went to play volleyball. There you have to jump too! The knee hurt a lot at night, but I could not. I wanted to play! I used to play volleyball at some point. We had a team, a group to play”.
