In addition to Russian president Vladimir Putin taking in the final day of team figure skating, the country’s prime minister also dropped in on an Olympic competition today – two of them, in fact.

Dmitry Medvedev visited Rosa Khutor today to catch the men’s downhill final, which was won by Austria’s Matthias Mayer.

While there, he donned a ski jumper’s helmet and also visited with International Olympic Committee president Thomas Bach.
