the russian capital during the festive period regarding buildings the christ the savior cathedral here is one highlight. is an overall height of one hundred five meters is the two most orthodox church in the world and can hold up to ten thousand people. it's a beautiful place to visit over the christmas holidays the brightly decorated in serious and soothing festive music welcomes visitors the old carols a sung mass is given and people reflect them pray for a healthy and successful year had the. this is an extremely busy period when it comes to accommodation in the capital from party planning to special events moscow's five star like asians plan such festivities well ahead like all hotels in major cities. christmas program is very expensive. it's an exciting time for us here obviously we have the weather we have the location. is normally snowy around christmas time so the environment it's

continued to be this season surprise package be a top three overall table with thirty one games played the men from china pinsky closely followed by one of the pre-season favorites and petersburg. namo i could easily swap third and fourth vault just one point separating the russians from reaching their moscow contra parts while. guard and i'm sure the top six overall. one man who's played plenty of times against all those teams kevin dolman is the focus of our profile series this week the canadian captain of the us the has been busy blazing a trail in the cage shell since he first arrived in kazakhstan in two thousand and eight to robert for down even more. this man's name is karen delman he's a canadian gunner in europe's strongest league the kid chill the three year old defenseman captains baristas do not easily beat many forwards in scoring influence he was born
of all three kids all star games and will make his fourth at the end of january twentieth will enjoy him because of sight in two thousand and eight down one was quick to stebbins his knee in the league the canadiens twenty goals and assists within his dad this isn't breaking the silver the russians help us sort of scoring position and bring you here the chills there's the plans for the war definitely have to after my first year when i didn't have a contract during that first year few changes reached out to my agents and i even i think a few team reaches to reshow to bury some and try to get me to leave very. very the year i had there the french are. no one on the team and the management was a tough tough decision i couldn't leave and then they made me captain and all that just everything went well and it fit well and it was calm to want to and really i
really enjoyed here. moving to the capital of physics then just like you leap in the dark this was a tough decision to make for doma and his family however it didn't take them long to find out what a star not really looks like the city which was named the best in the c.i.s. by the international passably of capitals and cities into until eleven i think one of the biggest things that i'm sure more most north americans all agree with me is when you hear russia are like kazakstan or whatever and you hear horror stories like it's really rough mean and as so when we got over here when i got over here it's nothing like that everyone is friendly everyone tries to help you know and it's just the same as back zero zero zero. something but it was really modern more really like back home it was easy to adjust and then i just started stace on the forum told it was nice and i went from there and now we love it here and
hopefully we can stay here for the rest of my career. in new environment is always a challenge but the sporting continued and the issue is even more important it doesn't do you still want to look looking players moving to europe to get used to bigger ice rinks where we're given gentlemen is quite a different story the canadian clear is a real potential game the europeans the hockey that is the same i mean in the end the only difference is that the service is a little bit there. so you don't get the physical this is not it is not as there as it is back home in the n.h.l. the small i service you know going to his russian i think that's that's not really what help my game but the bigger i service did because i like to read plays and jump in the open i saw that i was a big difference for us to mix success over here them and he's one of seven north americans with four c. that is this snow leopards exabyte which often gives them the edge that's the way
boris can call their pulls in a purely hockey way north american hostile europeans and it's all it's hockey and everyone yeah dog gels together there's major peons over there russians and everyone there all over the place so hockey is a salmon and it's just we like to bring that that aggressive grit and body checking in and it intimidates players some players but for most the most part i mean it's hockey you know you're going to get her ears you know you can't be afraid of that or. just look very much. robert bruno bertie. it is the game millions of football fans throughout the world are we having for the first al classico of the season the reality who taught the spanish table currently by three points take on nearest challengers and reaming champions on of course their biggest rivals barcelona later on saturday the pervert league giants have made one hundred sixty two times in their national championship but
tonight's hosts ryall holding the bragging rights with five wins more the ever looked imperious so far this year their. lives for three was this in a way too easy on the last week in december a new charges for just one defeat in fourteen games are now though helping himself to an incredible seventeen goals to date but so has this man world player of the year see the origin time on his teammates will enter the tie in confident mood being able to boast seven wins one draw in just three defeats against los collecting co since manager pep guardiola took over the capital on its there's a clear leader at the top of the world championship at the halfway stage. four strokes ahead of the field at the final golfing event of the season the spaniard brilliant display included an eagle on the last hole putting him further in front of new challenger peter hudson of sweden with robert rock on remark or roy five shots behind northern irish man

the semifinals meaning a danish test for the last podium spot head the two thousand and six european champions in russia who lost the opening in stride leading by one point denmark did come close to levelling in the penultimate end but the russian showed their dominance by controlling the last in five nil leaving their final score being seven . only the country's second ever piece of silverware meanwhile sweden will face the sport's heavyweight scotland on saturday. i don't think the game turned out to be very tight we were confident how to stay focused and concentrate on the result and you'll be so really happy to win the bronze medal. e.c. made them on their denmark is a very experienced team and we expected them to fight until the end we kept in mind that we should battle even if the equalized we followed the plan and we won.
finally ever wanted to take part in a major sports tournament but maybe didn't quite have the athletic prowess for its well maybe you can take a look at this interesting the first ever world mind games a battlefield for intellectuals as their tester with a chess bridge many other activities beijing here the city which host the two thousand. for brains this time with a traditional opening ceremony to set the stage chess go bridge draw off g the five activities the competitors knowing on the normal gold would put them on the fast track to celebrityhood the games are televised certainly adding to the pressure russian chess world champion alexandra costin uke stating it is a great platform for her sport to gain works and maybe even become an olympic discipline in the future. and i chess very much and i've been playing chess is age of five so it's a biggest part of my life and i'm always been dreaming of
