Congratu;ations to the UKrainian biathlon relay team for winning gold and Russia for winning the silver. It is no never mind to me because I root for Russians and Ukrainians.

What a pity that the idiotic media and the biased hate-filled Russophobes will be turning this win into some politically motivated to sensationalize the unrest in Ukraine.

I will bet that the biased hate-filled, Russopjobes in the Ukrainian community who ended up in Canada because they were running away after collaborating with the Nazis, who were genociding Ukraians as well as Russians and other slavs. have a hand in this unrest, timed to take place during the Sochi Olympics.

The Candian Ukrainians, the pushers of Holodomyr teach their kids Ukrainian and have meddled in Ukrainian affairs since the fall of the Soviet Union, and don't really care what happens to Ukraine as long as they can entangle Ukraine with the USA and the west and wreak havoc on the peace of the region with more political grabbing b y the west, as the idiotic and destructive orange revolution failed in Ukraine.

The gays have tried to ruin the Sochi Olympics by threats of demonstating during the Sochi Olympics and the idiotic Pussy Riot broads whose claim to fame is to scream obscenities in a church in Russia and are too cowardly to do their time after doing the crime, and of course the ever present Canadian Nazi-loving Ukrainians meddling in Ukrainian politics have all tried to ruin the Russian Olympics in Sochi, but it is still the most fascinating and successful Olympics in recent memory.

Congratulations to the Ukrainian women's biathlon team for winning the gold. But shame on you for using it for political purposes.

The west is not your friend any more than it was Russia';s friend. The only jobs they have offered the people of the east is to prostitute themselves as sex slaves and low paid menial jobs.

Keep the wonderful west and the lousy EU out of Ukraine and stop the misery that will ensue with their meddling.

Trust the wonderful west who has been using 99 percent of Russia's coaches and tons of athletes for the past 20 years to squak if a stray athlete or two decides to become a Russian citizen and actually wins something. Never mind that it is a small percentage of the total, compared to the theft of Russian Brain and highly artistic people laboring to make the athletes of the wonderful west better so they can finally win ice dance medals for example.

It is always double standards with the wonderful west who are the most blatant users of foreign athletes and coaches, to whine about any single and rare athlete who prefers to be an athlete for Russia.

I guess according to the DOUBLE STANDARDS of the wonderful west, they can steal every last athlete and coach Russia has, but heavon forbid someone become a Russian citizen. LOLOLOLOLOL!

Congratulations to Adelina, the 17 year old Russian girl who won gold in the ladies single blowing past the Americans and the South Korean and Italian. She won according to the points system which the west insisted on forcing on the skating athetes.

Now supposedly it works just fine as long as a Russian doesn't win. But now the American skaters are whining that the system has to be changed because a Russian won. But that is no surprise as figure skating has changed over the years.

The Americans whined until they got rid of the school figures.

Then they whined about Ice Dance. Doing three compulsory dances which is a technical test, they complained until they reduced it to 2 and then changed the amount of points a team could get for the short dance and then the long dance. That wasn't enough, meaning the west was winning as they didn't have what it took to win in ice dance, so they insisted on a point system. Now after the fall of the soviet Union and the loss of a lot of good people and coaches and athletes which benefitted the west who even with that glut of coaches werent' winning, until the lack of coaches in Russia, resulted in Russia running out of figure skaters who could find no training for most of the past 2 decades.

NOw that Russia has done the impossible and managed to produce some great figure skaters , the wonderful west needs to change rules again. LOL!!!!

The wonderful west acts like they are the only ones who should be winning medals even if they have to rob another country of all of its coaches.

I didn't recognize a single coach coaching Russians. But that's because the best ones are in North America catering to the USA , Canada and the world.

Too bad. Things are changing and there are some Russians who will not sell out their country for money.

Namely:

When the wonderful west Americans asked singles figure skaters the wonderful Irina Slutzkaya and Evgeni Pl.ushenko to come coach their brats. Slutzkaya and Plushenko po.litely delclined. The went back to Russia and began to do what they could to rebuild figure skating in Russia. Good for them. They did something for their country instead of sitting beside the likes of Davis and White and the Canadians and coaching them to finally get that elusive gold medal.

Looks like the biased hate-filled Russophobes are out in force pushing peanuts and x s to hide their embarrassment at the truth of the situation.

It is truly funny, as each one of those bitter marks they are punching on their computers is a testament to how angry they are at being told the truth.

It was the best Olympics ever. I watched every minute.

The Russian figure skating seems to be regenerating despite the 99 percent theft of their coaches and many athletes, as well as citizens now toiling to aggrandize the wonderful west.

Russians won plenty of golds even without those five medals won by Russian naturalized citizens.

What a hoot. The wonderful west got a bit of their own medicine. It was sweet revenge as Russia lost so much population, with deaths, and the movement of the brainy and talented people of Russia. Thanks to Vladimir Putin, they didn't get them all. There was still enough to get plenty of Medals for Russia.

How wonderful to see Russia whose population and talented people was decimated by the west to be on top of the leader board in total medals all by itself and not tied with anyone. Good Job Russia and Russians.
