Belarusian athlete Krystsina Tsimanouskaya has landed in Poland, where she is requesting political asylum. Last weekend, the sprinter refused orders from the Belarus Olympic delegation to leave the games in Tokyo and return to Belarus, after she criticized her coaches. Polish officials granted her a humanitarian visa, agreeing she would face harsh punishment under the authoritarian government of Alexander Lukashenko.
