World's Richest Phys Ed Teacher!

Decked out in Nets gear, Mikhail Prokhorov made an unannounced visit to Moscow School No. 2030 last week. Without much publicity, he worked with students on physical fitness exercises and routines. The school posted video on YouTube.

One of Moscow's best known talk-show hosts has been pushing oligarchs to get involved with Russian students, without much success. When the director of her children's school told Tina Kandelaki students wanted the Nets owner and the world's 39th richest man as their phys ed teacher, she made the call.

Prokhorov agreed and spent several hours with the kids, teaching and taking questions on the value of exercise in his life.
