Russian olympic prizes 1

In Russia olympic medal winners win. At the end of the every last olympic games they have been awarded by state with some cool stuff. Last time it was something like Lexus SUV and $100,000 in cash for each golden prize, bit less for silver and bronze. This year they get Audis and as for cash looks like it stays the same?

  1. They probably bought all those gifts with the savings from the old Communist Party.

    I’m disappointed. I would have expected them to get shiny, new Lada Nivas not German Audis. This IS Russia, after all. Plus, the Audi can’t hold a candle to the Niva in off road ability.

      Totally agree, I was looking at the pix and thinking, “where are the Ladas?”

        German engineering is superior.That is why Putin and Medvedev travel in German cars.There are some nice Ladas and Volgas but I did not see many Russians driving them when I was in Russia.

    Sign the Car, then sell it for the car value+celebrity owner value= more money

    I’d take a UAZ 4×4 over an Audi any day

    Pluschenko got his Audi for his outstanding whining after being awarded the silver medal

    Congratulations to them. Good job – it takes years of practice and determination to get where they are.

    Such incredible irony. Russia gives away gifts to their olympians. In America, government takes away gifts(taxed on dollar value) from olympians.

    This is not a post about racing but Moscow does make a perfect round race track that usually goes through Red Square for any video game!

  11. This is a superb piece of writing, I discovered your website doing research yahoo for a similar subject matter and arrived to this. I couldnt find to much different information and facts on this write-up, so it was good to locate this one. I definitely will be back to look at some other articles that you have another time.
