Is Prokhorov Looking for a Bigger Olympic Role?

Mikhail Prokhorov appears ready to take on a larger Olympic role as Russia prepares for the 2014 Winter Games in Sochi. While traveling with Russia's president in France, Prokhorov released a statement calling on Russia to overhaul its sports programs, citing poor management, training and equipment. Prokhorov's biathlon team gives his credibility. Biathletes won two of Russia's three gold medals in Vancouver.
