A healthy resolution: Putin and Medvedev ski into 2010

As Russians continue celebrating the New Year, the country's leaders are determined to set a healthy example.

President Medvedev and Prime Minister Putin ushered in the year at the country’s most popular winter sports resort.

While most of their countrymen have been downing New Year’s drinks and gorging themselves at feasts, the two spent the weekend skiing and riding snowmobiles in the areas surrounding the 2014 Olympic host city of Sochi.
