Vladimir Putin congratulated Denis Dmitriyev, winner in the individual sprint event at the 2017 track cycling world championship in Hong Kong.
The message reads, in part:
“You convincingly demonstrated your top-class skills and clinched a beautiful victory in a stubborn battle with strong rivals.
I am certain that your excellent training, determination, and genuinely sporting nature will continue to help you to achieve new great success”.
