and she speaks Russian and English. Her accent is very light and her disfluencies - word choice, mostly - are more obtrusive than those of most professional athletes.

If you're going to pick a pretty face, you could do a lot worse than someone who is fluent in both Russian and English.

She should totally make out with Anna Kournikova to protest Putin's draconian anti-gay laws.

I do love me some Maria Sharapova.  Anna Kournikova should be added to the broadcast coverage as well just in case their are pillow fights.

Being slightly more serious, here's a pretty fascinating piece about the opposition to Sochi's Olympics.

Boycotting the Olympics in Russia worked so well in 1980...

Meh, I'm justifiably pissed off about them harboring snowden too, but not enough to boycott the Winter Olympics.
