Here's another article with Putin weighing in on the men's skate last night:
http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/oth...ng-debate.htmlPutin lent his support to the Russian athlete, who was second on the podium to America's Evan Lysacekv, by saying his silver medal finish "was worth a gold medal."
Also from the same article, Plushenko's wife's comments:
Hey maybe if the Russians put up a big stink over this like the Canadians in 2002, the IOC will award a double gold medal for the men like they did for WATB Sale/Pelletier? That's snark, I think....Plushenko's wife demanded that Russian authorities publicly defend her husband who was relegated into second position by world champion Evan Lysacek despite the American's more conservative performance.
"This is a gross mistake by the judges," Plushenko's wife, Yana Rudkovskaya, told the Russia-24 television network. "We need to defend our sportsmen and protect their honour."
Scandal and drama--gosh, I love this sport!!
Tell him Plush. Evan is too overrated. and Overhyped by the American media. Those Yankee media and their silly behaviour.
