Russian Runner: It Wasn't A Gay Protest

"The storm of emotions going through us was incredible. And if we, accidentally, while congratulating each other, touched lips, excuse me. We think the whole fuss is more of a sick fantasy not grounded in anything." - Russian runner Kseniya Ryzhova, denying that the now-famous kiss with her teammate was done as a political act. The kiss earned international headlines and much debate as to its intent. It's also interesting that Ryzhova took four days to respond to the media frenzy.  (Tipped by JMG reader Wilson)
