Russian police spots Olympian skeleton workout in Sochi

Melissa Hollingsworth

Sliding sports athletes (bobsled, luge skeleton) have been in Sochi over the last week testing out the Sanki Sliding Center.

They haven’t been alone.

Take this photo from Canadian skeleton slider Melissa Hollingsworth, who got a little help from a Russian police officer while weightlifting.

Hollingsworth, a 2006 Olympic bronze medalist, placed fifth at the 2010 Olympics. She went on to win silver at the 2012 World Championships and finished sixth in last season’s World Cup standings.

The skeleton World Cup season begins Nov. 30 in Calgary, Alberta.
