I think "paying money" won't be enough to create that everyone-goes-clean-and-amazing nationals. We'd need to sell our souls for that to happen. And maybe get a time machine for Plushy (to travel to the past, to bring young Plushy back; or to travel to the future, and bring back cyborg technology).
I'm happy for Voronov and Menshov. Might've been their last chance internationally... Maybe they'll build on the momentum next season and win more things. Not everyone can be Olympic champion, but they can still have some personal victories.
