Russia's disappointing show in the Vancouver Olympics got a frosty reception from the country's leaders with president Dmitry Medvedev calling for Olympic officials to quit.
Medvedev blamed the team's failures on "fat cat" bureaucrats who presumably had more of an interest in their own gold, silver and bronze than their athletes modest haul of 15 medals.
The president called for a complete overhaul of the country's sporting programs to halt the downhill slide ahead of the next winter olympics in 2014, which Russia is hosting in Sochi.
Russian athletes, trainers and sport officials meanwhile blamed bad luck, lousy weather, equipment failure, echoes of previous doping scandals, judges' bias and other factors for its dismal showing.
Are a nation's sports officials ultimately responsible for their athletes poor showing? And should they lose their jobs over it?
