Gorshkov elected President of Russian Federation

Former world and Olympic ice dance champion Aleksandr Gorshkov has been elected president of the Russian Figure Skating Federation. He replaces longtime president Valentin Piseyev.

“It’s a great privilege for me but also brings a lot of responsibility,” Gorshkov told reporters. “It’s also something of a new role for me but I have enough experience to lead Russian figure skating to new heights.”

The move comes after Piseyev stepped down following a poor team showing at the Olympic Games in Vancouver.

Your time will come… the Russians will own the podium again in Sochi.
