Russia, Georgia medalists embrace despite conflict (The Associated Press) -- Their countries may be in a conflict, but a Russian and a Georgian shared a podium and an embrace after winning Olympic medals Sunday. A day after Georgian athletes considered leaving due to violence back home, Vakhtang Salukvadze took the bronze in the women's 10m air pistol. Russia's Natalia Paderina took the silver, and after the medal ceremony, Salukvadze put her arm around Paderina and the two posed together for photographs. Paderina than gave Salukvadze a kiss on the cheek. ... [A]n 18-year-old Georgian who competes in the gymnastics trampoline event, said there should be no difficulties while competing with the Russians. "I think it's not a problem with sportsmen. It's politics," Golovina said. "Sports and politics are different."
