    I am sure this is somewhere in a previous thread, but I am curious, where in Russia do you live?

    Isn't that called St. Petersburg now? And how old were you when you immigrated here?

    It was called Leningrad when I lived there and I was 14 when my family and I left. I left at the end of 1990 and it was still called Leningrad. The pricks re-named it.

    Its funny though they re-named Leningrad but the suburbs and other areas around are still called Leningrad's suburbs:

    But they train under Russian system and with Russia's oil money.

    On the right - a Dagestani, the 2003 champ of Russia at 60 kg.
    I don't see oil money in his hands, do you? The guy left the mat, went to the mountains and joined a special team wrestling the Russian mostly with things which can be seen also in this picture.

    akzent,

    Ketoev is not ethnic Russian. I believe he made almost $20K of Russian oil money at Yarigin alone this year.
