definitely something new in Russia. and fun to watch how they work the broom...
but from the looks in the articles, from other links as well, no one is much interested in the sport as such. funny though, or maybe goood so, the scribblers seem to have found only one bikini shot, togehter with her husband. for sure, soon there will be more, modeling agencies will queue at here door... and the big $$$ will come. advertising, photoshoots, and so on. lets just hope that curling will still be there first priority.
would be a sad thing if she ends up like Anna Kournikova...

i do not think an athlete would be so stupid, having qualified, taking ANYTHING, that might make it suspicious.
there is a story around that a jealous -colleague- who did not qualify, spiked his drink.. sounds VERY plausible to me. but it's better to find out and wait what the enquiry has to say. let's just hope that they are unbiased and stick to facts and no fiction.

It was this beautiful Russian girls husband that was accused of doping.


Funny how they had an news article written about them before it all happened.

interesting statement here in this article.

concentration showed that it was a -one time- use. and therefore absolutely useless as a -doping- usage. wonder if the courts or whoever will find out who -dunnit-.
