MOSCOW -- Luxury cars, apartments, even a racehorse -- being an Olympic medalist in Russia can come with great material rewards but also controversy. Cheap Nike Sb Shoes .Under President Vladimir Putin, its become a tradition for Russias Olympic heroes to be showered with large cash sums and sometimes unwanted gifts.On Friday, less than 24 hours after dozens of medalists were presented with BMW cars at the Kremlin by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev, an advertisement appeared online offering one of them for sale, with photographs showing the car still covered in stickers celebrating Russias medal haul in Rio.The advertisement offering the BMW X6 for 4.67 million rubles ($72,000) was anonymous and quickly withdrawn. It couldnt be independently verified by The Associated Press, though Russian agency R-Sport claimed the seller was a Russian medalist who thought the car was too big and unwieldy.Figure skater Maxim Trankov, who received a Mercedes-Benz SUV for his gold medal in 2014, said few Olympians could afford to own such cars.Has no one thought that these gift cars are not only liable for the tax on luxury items, but also arent cheap to run and earnings cant cover it? he wrote on Twitter. Id sell mine too if it came to it ... Or does everyone think all sports pay as well as soccer, hockey or tennis?Gymnast Seda Tutkhalyan said she wouldnt be able to drive her new BMW because at 17 years of age she was too young to have a license.While online commenters mostly supported an athletes right to sell expensive Olympic gifts, many were critical of the government for a display of conspicuous consumption at the Kremlin at a time when Russias pension and healthcare systems are under financial strain.Its not fully clear how much the prizes have cost the Russian government.State TV channel Rossiya 24 reported that the fleet of BMWs was provided by the Olympians Support Fund, which is backed by a group of Russias richest men, but that the accompanying cash prizes of tens of thousands of dollars per medalist came in part from the federal budget.More awards are on offer from regional governments, many of which made public displays of generosity despite financial troubles of their own.The Caucasus region of North Ossetia last month promised a free apartment for any medalists from the area, though it isnt clear if this has happened yet. In another grand gesture, the head of the restive Dagestan region gave Olympic wrestling champion Abdulrashid Sadulaev 6 million rubles ($93,000) in cash and a racehorse at a lavish welcoming ceremony featured on local TV.Still, all may not be well for Sadulaev, whos nicknamed the Russian Tank for his habit of crushing opponents on the wrestling mat. Hes already facing an allegation from a Moscow radio presenter of reckless driving in his eye-catching BMW. Nike Sb Clearance Sale .ca look back at each of the Top 10 stories of 2013.

Cuban testified Thursday that he was upset when the companys CEO told him news that would reduce the value of his shares, for which hed paid $7.5 million. But he said he did nothing improper when he sold those shares over the next two days. A late own-goal from Melbourne City midfielder Neil Kilkenny has gifted Western Sydney a point in a controversial 1-1 draw.City star Tim Cahill appeared to have celebrated his highly-anticipated comeback to his hometown by delivering a 55th-minute match-winner at Spotless Stadium on Friday.But his effort was cancelled when a blindsided Kilkenny accidentally bodied home a cross from Wanderers winger Jack Clisby in injury time, on what was almost the final play of the match.Cahills goal came just four minutes after Western Sydney striker Kerem Bulut was robbed of a goal when he was incorrectly ruled offside.Bulut appeared to have broken his goalscoring drought when he fired under an advancing Thomas Sorensen, running straight to the Red and Black Bloc for a 30-second celebration.But the local boy was called back by referee Chris Beath and was substituted not long after Cahills effort, ending a frustrating night that included four first-half offsides.Replays later showed Bulut was onside.It was another western Sydney product that further incensed the home crowd, with Cahill timing his run into the six-yard box with precision and finishing off a Fernando Brandan cross.The majority of the poor crowd of 14,232 - a near-sellout was expected - booed the Socceroos veteran after the effort, just his second since cominng back to Australia.

City coach John vant Schip could have a couple of injury concerns, with goalkeeper Dean Bouzanis a halftime substitute with a shoulder concern and Osama Malik coming off with a groin issue.Wanderers coach Tony Popovic was cautious not to criticise the decision to deny Bulut a goal, and instead praised his team for fighting back after the disappointment.The less said about that the better but in the end, Id rather look at how good that move was, to create a one-on-one opportunity, Popovic said post-game.They dropped for a period there after that goal. You can see psychologially they were still affected by it.. But it was great to see them fight to the end to get a point.City coach vant Schip was disappointed with his teams first half performance and, despite an improved second half, the way they failed to kill the game off.Its disappointing of course the way it went. We played some good football in the second half, the first half was not what we were looking for, what we talked about, he said.Second half we did a lot better, went up 1-0, but then in the last few minutes, we just didnt organise enough and didnt make the right decisions in defending.
