    "Who is Mr. Bush"

    http://fsnews.ru/page-id-464-comments-1.html

    July 7, 2008

    Today, sports journalists were too busy. A certain "Jean BUSH" was found in the list of Russian participants for the first event of the Junior Grand Prix, to take place in Courcheval, France in late August. Moscow's and Petersburg's colleagues mysteriously winked at each other, asking "Is it your boy?", and trying to guess if some famous skater switched nationalities. Actually, there was even disagreement on Russian pronunciation of the given name. Searches through Russian Nationals protocols turned out nothing. N-o-t-h-i-n-g. As the Russian Figure Skating federation explained - this is a young athlete from the city of Cheljabinsk, and he was formerly known as Jean Devinsky, so there is no error. So, ladies and gentlemen, keep your cool!

    Thanks for the information.

    Jean Bush "Devinsky" from Cheljabinsk finished 13th (133,92 points) at Russian Jr. Championships 2008!

    A really interesting selection from Russia.

    I just thought he was the son of an English or American diplomat. Many of the diplomat children in Russia study ballet while their parents are posted there.
