Today we had the opportunity to meet with some special (and rather famous) guests at our shop. Olympic Speed Skater Alexander Gertsikov (standing in the middle) and his Coach (pictured at left) spent some time chatting in Russian with our very own and very tall RSD rep, Kirill C. To our surprise, Alexander drives a Subie himself! When this man is not flying on the ice, he is flying in his 2002 World Rally Blue STi Wagon.
Alexander Gertsikov and his coach are in Salt Lake finishing up some training before heading out to Vancouver for the games. Alexander will be representing Russia in the short track speedskating event at the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, which starts this month…
We are honored to have them stop by, and we wish them the best of luck in this year’s Winter Games!
