MOSCOW, March 13, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin and Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Thursday congratulated Russian Paralympic champion alpine skier Valery Redkozubov.
Redkozubov earlier on Thursday won the gold medal in men's slalom for visually impaired athletes at the XI Paralympic Winter Games in the Russian Black Sea resort of Sochi. Spain’s Yon Santacana Maiztegui claimed silver and Canada’s Chris Williamson took the bronze medal.
“A talented, goal-oriented athlete, you persistently followed the path to this victory. You demonstrated excellent training, a strong and combative character and by right became a champion of the XI Paralympic Winter Games,” Putin’s congratulatory message says.
“Team Russia's flag bearer at the Games opening, you showed the best result in slalom and took the place at the top of the podium by right,” Medvedev’s telegram says.
