MOSCOW (AP) — Russian news agencies have reported that President Dmitry Medvedev may attend part of the Vancouver Olympics.
The ITAR-Tass and RIA Novosti agencies said Medvedev dropped hints during a meeting Wednesday with sports and Russian Olympic Committee officials that he may visit Canada.
Olympic Committee president Leonid Tyagachev invited Medvedev to attend the Russian women's snowboard finals, and Medvedev said "it would be great to watch the ice hockey finals as well."
Some of the Vancouver venues are troubled by a lack of snow and Medvedev said "we can deliver some from Sochi," the Russian city that hosts the next edition of the Winter Games in 2014.
