JR's Olympic Odyssey: The Russian "Whale Tail"

Russian Whale Tail

The fashionable 'whale tail' is a prominent feature in Russian culture. Pictured here is a coach of the Russian women's quadruple scull (4x)

The Ukrainian quad has two very cute rowers. Most of the boys have been smiling and saying hi to them. Next week should be interesting when the rowing's over!
