Gold, Silver and Bronze for Russia

A happier Sunday for the Russian Team at the Vancouver Winter Olympics after the inexplicable decision to award the silver medal to Evgeni Plushenko’s flawless performance in the men’s figure skating – the only skater to attempt the quadruple jump. Sunday saw Russia add a Gold, Silver and Bronze to the tally of medals, and on Monday another Bronze.

The Gold medal came in the Men’s Biathlon 15 km mass start, Evgeny Ustyogov winning the event ahead of France’s Martin Fourcade (Silver) and Slovakia’s Pavol Hurjat.

Olga Zaitseva won Silver for Russia in the Women’s Biathlon 12.5 km mass start, an event in which Germany claimed the other two medals. Magdalena Neuner got Gold and Simone Hauswald, Bronze.

The Two-Man Bobsleigh Team, Aleksandr Zubkov and Aleksei Voevoda claimed Bronze behind the Germany Andre Lange and Kevin Kuske (Gold) and Thomas Florshueltz and Richard Adjei (Silver).

On Monday, another Bronze medal. In the Women’s Team Sprint Free Irina Khazova and Natalia Korosteleva came in third behind the German pair Evi Sachenbacher-Stehle and Claudia Nystad (Gold) and Sweden’s Charlotte Kalla and Anna Haag (Silver).

In the Men’s team Sprint Free, Russia’s Nikolai Morilov and Aleksei Petukhov won their semi-final.
