Re: News & Articles Part 3 - The Return of the Yeti

For anyone who doesn't already have the link to the OKP official site: http://www.olympic.ru/.

List of vice-presidential candidates is here: http://www.olympic.ru/ru/election200..._vice-prez.asp. Marat is third from bottom, looking like he's just been busted for speeding. The gold coloured text announces his withdrawal from the election.


Criminally hot.

Mashenka, will you watch Тарпищев на приеме today? Hopefully Tarpi will cast a light on the situation.

Re: News & Articles Part 3 - The Return of the Yeti

Damn! Marat out of Argentina and the OC elections! After all my hopes that Christmas will be quite generous to me.



But in anyway, Marat said once or twice he loves Patagonia, let's just stalk him there.

You have been awarded a red card.

Red card of LOVE AHAHAHA. Bite me.

situation at the moment
Not clear yet if Marat withdrew or not
Marat will be running for another position (confirmed by both Tarpi and OC)
When tennis federation i.e Tarpi nominated Marat to VP position the goal wasn't to be elected - Tarpi and OC made it clear that Marat had no chance from the beginning. The idea was to show Marat's intention to work for russian sport.
Tarpi is planning to retire .. well, not in the nearest future but still

I think we got lucky this time, he's only been mislaid.

The official site of the ROC has information that candidate Safin withdrawn from the election for the post of vice-president of the ROC.

"In fact, today the Electoral Commission simply could not find Marat" said Gennady Shvets in an interview with the correspondent of the Soviet Sport.

"But we believe that if Marat really wants to help the Olympic movement, the first he had better run for the new structure - the Board at the Olympic Committee of Russia. And get the post of vice-president R & D he is very unlikely, since the three places claiming 16-honored perezasluzhennyh candidates."

Criminally hot.
^That looks like the mugshots that get printed in my local paper of the morons who start bar fights.




**thinks it over** Oh, dear...
Very hot mugshot, though.

I'm not bothering to comment on this whole olympic fiasco until he actually gets a job.

First time I looked at the VP list, I was scrolling down down down, past all these grey, grim, middle-aged executive faces, then suddenly there's Marat, the world's hottest human being, looking like he's in police custody! Maybe it's the unnatural fixed gaze that's leaves such an odd impression. Anyway, at least he doesn't look as if he's been picked up for soliciting and worse (a la Hugh Grant! ).

Me neither! Truth be told, I'm slightly apprehensive about this new career direction. It means he has to embrace a new daytime look, specifically the suit 'n' tie wearing, laptop-toting, possibly chain-smoking sports official. Horribly conventional, and it looks as if the transformation is almost complete. (he might just be checking his ebay bids tho' ...)
