I am watching the Olympics and the Russian figure skater that just turned in a near perfect program crossed himself after his program (thumb and two fingers) Vashenko I think is his name.
An Orthodox Olympian!

It's nice to get that every once and awhile... Of course, it coming from a Russian olympian wouldn't affect the audience as much as it would coming from, say, an American or an Asian....
"If you are going to serve the Lord, be prepared for times when you will be put to the test. Be sincere and determined. Keep calm when trouble comes. Stay with the Lord; never abandon Him and you will be prosperous at the end of your days. Accept whatever happens to you. Even if you suffer humiliation, be patient. Gold is tested by fire and human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Trust the Lord and He will help you. Walk straight in His ways and put your hope in Him. " Sir 2:1-6

It is Yevgeni Pluschenko.  I don't like him - he's just seems so arrogant...as if he's just entitled to win every time.
