Funny, but Russia hasn't won gold at 'hockey' - Ice Hockey - ever ... 

It has won as CCCP / USSR, the 'unified team' and OAR ( 2018 Winter games) - but never under the RU flag ...
I have never claimed to be a Blue Beret

Spurious claims about 'seeing action' with the Blue Berets are debunked >here<

Maybe this should be moved to Moby’s Russiaphobia? Or just come out as being a pedantic troll.

As I recall The Netherlands and Russia did quite well in Norway when the winter Olympics were held there. There have been less than 10 winter Olympics since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Are you referring to the most recent one that included the "whack heard around the world"?   :chuckle:
