Russia Team-1 in Khanty-Mansiysk

Hi Everyone!
Today is the first free day of the Olympiad and the teams are resting and getting ready for the next 6 rounds. After the first 5 rounds in the women’s tournament the teams of Russia and Ukraine are in the lead and tomorrow we will meet in a direct encounter. Before this round our team went for a nice autumn stroll in Khanty-Mansiysk. The weather is perfect for this time of this year. All trees are yellow and in the Victory Park I found a nice poster , have a look a the photo below.

Have a look at my photos of the day:

    Dearest Alexandra,

    I was so happy to find this picture -the one with the poster-, so I already saved it to my PC. I am glad you’re doing good in the tournament, I am looking for the games in your website and can’t find them yet, but I’m sure they’re somewhere here.

    Wishing you the best from Mexico City,

    Good Luck in Khanty – Mansiysk – Bring home the gold – I don’t know if the women medalists get $50,000 each like the Russian men but you should! Great to see your team winning.
