The games haven’t even started yet, and this Olympics is already one giant shitstorm. Between canine genocide, anti-LGBT policy, failed accommodations and botched courses, a majority of the press from Russia is negative. Now we can add Vladimir Putin’s reported girlfriend to the long list of weird.

Putin, who divorced from his wife of 30 years in 2013, has been linked to Russian gymnast Alina Kabaeva. Speculation around Olympic Village is that Kabaeva will light the Olympic torch at the opening ceremonies.

Putin, however, denies the claims. Via

“I’m aware of this (the speculation), I was told of this by (Kremlin spokesman) Dmitry Peskov. These are the usual red herrings,” Mr Putin said while touring a nature reserve above Sochi.

“We have many outstanding sportspeople who are significant and known in the whole world and I am not going to interfere in this process.”

The only thing that’s for sure with these Olympics is to expect the unexpected. Stay tuned.
