Torino 2006. Russia wins its first Gold!

The first medal for Russia was won by Evgenia Arbuzova in Cross-country Womens 15km Pursuit on Sunday, February 12. It wasnt gold yet, but it was a fair start for Russian team. This is the first time Evgeniya appears on Winter Olympics, and to win even a bronze medal is purely a bliss for her. These are my first Olympic Games, and I get a medal straight off! shares Evgenia with Gazeta.ru.
      A few hours later Russia became a golden-medal holder. This time it was Cross-country Mens 30km pursuit, won by Evgeny Dementiev, who will also partake in Relay and Cross-country 50km Free, Mass start. I dedicate this victory to Russian fans. I learned the technique from Norwegian Bjorn Dali, but always supported Russian sportsmen, Evgeny told Gazeta.ru.
      And later luger Albert Demchenko won a silver medal for Russia. Albert, the European Luge Champion, yielded only to Italian luger Armin Zoeggeler. Both Russian male medallists were mysteriously appointed to starting numbers 13 by the sortition. Could this be the lucky number for Russian team?
      Russian fans will be watching most carefully the figure skating tonight, where currently Russian pair Tatyana Totmyanina and Maksim Marinin lead. They are ahead of the Chinese duo Dan Zhang and Hao Zhang by 4 points. Another Russian pair Maria Petrova and Aleksey Tikhonov are right behind their Chinese rivals, they are just 0.45 points short.
