Medvedev’s administration head quits post at swimming federation

Medvedev’s administration head quits post at swimming federation
Sergey Naryshkin, the head of presidential administration in Russia, has stepped down from his other job as the president of the country's swimming federation.

This is in line with new rules from President Medvedev, who wants to see sports professionals heading sports’ governing bodies in Russia.

Naryshkin will still oversee the sport, after becoming the head of the Guardianship board of the Russian Swimming Federation.

Four-time Olympic champion Vladimir Salnikov has been appointed the body's acting president until elections take place.
