In 2013 the systematic degradation of Belarusian sports continued, which was most vivid in the mass and most popular kinds of sports – soccer, hockey, track and field athletics, and also in the traditional Olympic disciplines – cycling, boxing, weight-lifting. The national ice hockey team lost the qualification tournament and failed to get to the Olympic Games in Sochi. The football national team took the last place in the qualifying group tournament at the 2014 World Cup. At the World Forum in Moscow athletes remained without medals as it had happened at the London Olympic Games 2012 and showed the worst performance during two decades. Medal achievements in the Olympic disciplines were as poor as ever. In gymnastics and wrestling where the pupils of national sports schools used to be stars, the front of the scene was taken by the athletes who had arrived to Belarus from CIS countries. The disbalance in sports policy in favor of ice hockey led to the fact that the two-million capital remained without football stadiums for international matches. All the mentioned above is an indicator of the low efficiency of the sports sector which in 2013 again underwent destructive reforming: according to Presidential Decree No. 168 sports and tourism departments in cities of regional subordination and in the regions were incorporated into the education departments.
