there have only been a few russians who had been invited to take part in the past. who was the first person from my country but to get into the pretty m i think that's really cool that . money on it took up power lifting my accident her father was a keen competitor and often took his daughter along with him her dad on xander is always with money on her and is also her trainer and is absolutely delighted by her success no more want to first tournament after just two months of competing however her hardest task is getting her mum to approve her new found interest. as well because my mom is also a sports woman and often goes to the gym and that i was in now she's really happy for me even though at the start she was worried about my health now everything is fine i also have a little sister and she likes aerobics but i don't think she will become a powerless dangling it just point being a rising star in the world of powerlifting money on her lips

the friends with you we want our license back and we give our room to achieve that was. staying with cycling and disgrace rider lance armstrong has been dealt another blow from an unexpected quarter as for my swimming great even thought said he was happy after the seven tour de france titles were taken from the american but when the lance armstrong thing happened and although i recognize all of the good work that he's done in reading what the statement was and what was up against him or show me everything that was true i was happy. because it meant that no matter who you are where you are in the world whatever you've accomplished you can be caught however armstrong's former doctor back to the cancer survivor as mackay ferrari spoke out for the first time since the don't think scandal i never seen. any dog practically it's from lance armstrong i can't. say i've never seen i
never. something. about that and. he never ask me. informations or. about doping. on me one on four wheels and nine time world champion sebastian love says he wants to see more women drivers in the sport maybe the depression is not exactly the same i don't think reed's physically in already you can so not say it's impossible for girls physically to do it so it's more a question of maybe interest of taking a risk because it's also a sport which could be dangerous sometimes we saw a few girls arriving as the top level in rodeo or some other discipline but for sure we don't see a lot. unfunny the organizers of the london olympics want the games to finally go

olympic bowl is just one of those benefits exclusive to that time closed doors within the kremlin walls and this they set up and listen to the truth to thank the russians the middle east is their sobriety it's great to be able to bring together that olympic family including the current crop of olympic athletes as well as if you know champions just it's about looking back at this excesses of the year but also together the head of another challenging year at school should do so just not only current modeling is kind of vital champions of previous olympics like when they come out of your one day he was a soft first ever gold sixteen years ago helsinki were in attendance and there are also some big name athletes on the guest list who've been charismatic ambassadors of the russian school it's my first ball actually olympic any of the balls is my first one so. i can see a lot of very good looking people it's very nice to see the big stars from the past . hopefully as well for the future. but it's a nice and those of us fair
a lot of friends over to dress the dress up nice of everybody they get serious about that huge one of them has been held since the south finally allowed the athletes to compete kicks and this has added extra value to the. russian community celebrating sixty minutes to space thanks phil is a lavish affair something that spent the night aiming to be conscious of the ocean at arsenal in your i'm extremely happy to have been invited to this ball i just heard about it when i was a child and i had been dreaming. about attending ever since so i'm happy that london twenty twelve gave me that opportunity it's amazing to be around such a sporting elite to go it's the criminal a crimp of russian sport. and the event is not just the celebration of an election that is so in the woods or i told when a diver has a heart of was named sportsman of the year and champion gymnast alia me started on this woman while i was gold winning volleyball team grab the men's team and the
conference synchronized swimming and gymnastics team were named joy this list of the cities and to a rather busy here for many of the athletes a well deserved party before the focus turns to sochi twenty. five of the tankers are to spare. and finally following russia's success at this summer's paralympics a group of the country's medalist visited children as a school for the disabled here in moscow to trade presents tips and a few success stories like ally charles reports. in december each year the russian paralympic committee hold events across the country aimed at encouraging a new generation of young athletes at the recent paralympics in london russia finished second bugger all in the medal table behind china the country's best ever position claiming thirty six golds and the hundred true in toronto and in the spirit of spreading their success i knew the committee and
a group of paralympic champions visited the moscow boarding school for the second year running to help inspire a new set of potential young stars. in building the paralympic champions who are the proud of russia are not raised in offices its care centers and schools like this one that catches these talents and train them really appreciate the hard work of those people who make it all possible among the athletes who come to see the children this table tennis player junior of seneca over the paralympic silver medalist risking to share the secret service experience and gave a master class to group a very enthusiastic pew. it was such a high profile this it's can make a huge difference for these children and to have a go at one of this or it's an emotionally it's also a great moment you can see their eyes are filled with joy and happiness and that's the most important thing for us and it wasn't just the children who enjoyed the afternoon the women's paralympic volleyball team also joined in the fall and games
as well as weightlifting bronze medalist glad to make the range of sports these athletes represent the pleasure they gave to the kids and the chances they offered the youngsters to show off their skills means that everyone involved is a winner of the game in a bit which and events like this are vital for people with disabilities for the paralympic athletes and for people in general it helps to raise awareness and tolerance of the results with achieved quite hard even for the standards of able bodied people so these must have classes really play a big role in people with disabilities who don't have a lot of opportunities to practice or to get a graphic example of what they could achieve events such as these not only stimulate children's interest in sport but also help them believe in themselves and discover their sporting talents and with the added inspiration of the upcoming such a winter paralympics in their own country it's possible that some of these kids might one day get their own chance of olympic glory. r.t.
