19-year-old Elene Gedevanishvili is a Georgian Olympic Figure skater who you might classify as a “field” bet in Vancouver. Thank goodness figure skating has always been more aesthetic than aftereffect.
Like most Americans, besides hockey, Winter Olympic results are mostly immaterial to me. Sport is an incidental backdrop to reconnect with the rest of the world for a week or three.
More specifically, remind me of the beauty mostly buried beneath the criminal regimes running the Russian *republics*. By no means would I quantify Gedevanishvili as voluptuous. (She’s no Katarina Witt.) But she’s got a substantial figure that is more Venice beach than Tbilisi rink.
If Joe Francis hasn’t tasked his attorney with extracting loopholes from Soviet tax codes yet, he has now.
