    i think i read , in the hospital, that russias leading tycoons are offering financial bonuses for their athletes-kind of a contradiction here isnt it ?

    If Russia wins 10 or more Gold medals in three styles at Olympics, each Gold medalist will get $1mil. If fewer than 10 Golds, then each Gold medalist gets $500K. That's the deal from what I understand.

    Tycoons in America sponsor athletes to promote themselves in America. In Russia tycoons sponsor athletes to prevent being stifled by the government!

    I like that plan. It has a bit of team motivation with it.

    It is a shame that a wrestler from the USA is not rewarded for being the best in the world. I do not think they get 100K bonuses.......LOL

    Yeah, they now have Russian women wrestle and train with Russian men to make sure the women win some Gold medals.

    Osip Mihailov lost in the 1st round to a Junior wrestler. Rumor is Mavlet beat Dudaev.
