Russian Olympians, at least the gold medalists at the Games in Pyeongchang, from the hands of the Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev went to the machine not the model he had promised.

This was stated by the President of Figure skating of Russia Alexander Gorshkov. According to him, the Olympians, who brought Russia the gold Games in Pyeongchang initially promised to give the BMW X6, silver medalists and bronze BMW X5 – the BMW X4.
“In fact, they got a X5 and X4. X6 I have not seen,” – said Gorshkov at a press conference in Moscow, reports “Interfax”.
The Olympic champion Alina Sagitova confirmed that it had received only X5. Skater Evgenia Medvedeva won silver of the Olympic games, has announced that it has received the X4.
On average, depending on configuration the price of BMW X6 ranges from 4 890 000 to 6 000 010 rubles. But the BMW X5 is from 3 700 000 to 5, 800, 000. So gold medalists got the car cheaper than expected.
We will remind also that yesterday during the presentation of cars there was confusion. Some athletes got the boxes, destined to other Olympians, but then they made the exchange.
