PUTIN PUTS ON SKIS TO INSPECT SOCHI WINTER OLYMPICS SITE

0

MOSCOW: Russian President Vladimir Putin polished his action-man credentials on Friday (Saturday in Manila) by skiing in Sochi on the first day of a visit to the host city of the Winter Olympic Games opening in a month. The leader — who in the past has been photographed fishing and horse-riding bare-chested, piloting aircraft and a submarine, hang-gliding, playing ice hockey and practicing judo — donned a black ski-suit along with Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev for a run close to a complex that will be used for downhill and biathlon competitions in the Olympics. The Winter Olympic Games are to take place February 7 to 23.
