The original link is here.. it's all in Russian though.
"Olympic champions of Salt Lake City in pair figure skating Elena Berezhnaya and Anton Sikharulidze are going to bring an action against the American broadcasting companies. According to the skaters, american tv media have been insulting the pair during the Games , and now when airing stories about russian mafia they're showing their photos as gold medallists. "I think that canadians and north american brotherhood should calm down already and be satisfied with the set of gold medals that was presented to them"- has noted Siharulidze"
Is this a smart move?
I'd like to think so. They deserve something for all the pain this has caused them. They don't have anything to do with the mobster guy. They shouldn't use their pictures.
