The most Australian interest on the tenth day of the Winter Olympics looks like centring on two Russian figure skaters.( I mean seriously, Aboringines are really ugly people anyway…. I guess it must be really fun being NOT WHITE these days, just so you can throw a hissy fit using the race card
Oksana Domnina and Maxim Shabalin are expected to skate to their controversial Australian Aboriginal-themed dance when they do their original routine at the Pacific Coliseum on Sunday afternoon.
The pair have come under fire for choosing the dance which appears to be a misguided homage to indigenous culture.
The routine has offended Aboriginal elders because of its random use of loincloths, bodypaint and eucalyptus leaves and there have also been question marks about the music and the use of the didgeridoo.
The Russians first came to prominence doing the routine at last month’s European championships.
Their coach, Natalia Linichuk, has been keen to make clear that no offence was intended and has taken to carrying a photo of traditionally attired Aborigines with her to show people that her skaters were wearing similar costumes.
“We didn’t make this up,” she said, showing journalists pictures of Aboriginal dancers wearing leaves around their knees, body paint and a red loincloth similar to their costumes.
“They (Domnina and Shabalin) will wear the same costumes (as before), but a little less.”
That controversy comes on top of Russian Evgeni Plushenko’s spat over not winning gold in the men’s event at the Winter Olympics.
It’s a quiet day for the Australians in competition with only three athletes in action.
Scott Kneller has already won through the qualifying rounds of the ski cross, finishing in a surprisingly strong 12th.
He’ll now compete in the head-to-head rounds of the sport which is making its Olympic debut.
Duncan Harvey and Chris Spring are the lone Australians in the two-man bobsleigh after Jeremy Rolleston and Duncan Pugh spectacularly crashed out on Saturday.
They’ll compete in their third and fourth heats
