Russian runners claim kiss not politically motivated
Two Russian runners insist that the kiss they shared Saturday was just in celebration, not protest.
Two female Russian runners who shared a kiss at the track and field world championships in Moscow said Tuesday that the kiss was just that: a kiss.
"The storm of emotions going through us was incredible. And if we, accidentally, while congratulating each other, touched lips, excuse me," one of the runners, Kseniya Ryzhova, told the Associated Press. "We think the whole fuss is more of a sick fantasy not grounded in anything."
Given the location, many where beginning to speculate that the kiss was a form of protest with regard to Russia's new law, which bans the dissemination of homosexual propoganda.
Russia will play host to the 2014 Sochi Olympic Games, and there have been calls for boycotts due to the passage of the law.
