Belarus has been among the leading freestyle countries for many years. The country’s sports stars include Olympic champions and medal winners Alexei Grishin, Dmitry Dashchinsky, Alla Tsuper, Anton Kushnir, young athletes Denis Osipov, Maxim Gustik, Stanislav Gladchenko, Anna Guskova, and Alexandra Romanovskaya. Head coach of the Belarusian national team Nikolai Kozeko has earned international fame.

The main aerials water ramps with a special polymeric coating were designed by Belarusian engineers using advanced technologies.
