something i think i'm pretty used to or i mean obviously he is just completely different than any other he voted so. it's ok and you just got to be ready to play in any circumstances. and on the men's side four times as defending champion novak djokovic you need cost argentina as one minako seventy five six won in an exhibition match in melbourne before kicking off his title defense against slovak lukash last go talk of edge was joining the other hot from rockefeller dot andy murray and roger federer the serbian six time grand slam champion is targeting his first grand down and back now with the one point boris becker as his new coach. it's great to be back hey i love australia i love coming back here i miss that also . you know last couple of couple weeks i've been spending a lot of time of course on the court with my team and off the court in the gym and doing everything necessary to get ready for
a start of the season and of course the first grand slam. and on the eve of the australian open to bitch once again how about chocolates to journalists at the pre-tournament press conference something that's becoming a bit of a tradition while the women is defending champion victoria azarenka of belarus hopes they can also maintain their winning ways at melbourne park as the twenty four year old targets her third straight title. i think you know here she was joking and said like it's became a tradition you know do this every year this. year is trying our hardest to make sure we do the surgery but you know it's been fun the last two years hopefully thinking. next year might not be fun for the world's highest paid baseball player alex rodriguez is set to lose around twenty two million dollars after the new york yankees third baseman was banned until the end of the n.l.b. season following a doping scandal a rod suspension was actually cut from
a would be record of two hundred eleven to one hundred sixty two games but will still keep him out of the postseason matches the thirty eight year old plans to contest the ban in federal court. now into winter sports and the canadian ice hockey team will soon head to sochi even to defend their olympic title while one former all star player is already in the east helping out the latest team to join the k h l gonzo game but top of caught up with mentor shot captain jonathan cheechoo here in moscow. right winger johnson she sure has been always teasing his ice hockey dream born into a native crease settlement called moose factory in the canadian province so from tyra she too made his community proud by making his way into the san jose sharks where he set the club record in gold and walked away with the morris rocket reshot raunchy in two thousand and six after the fever to see go all season but after a few injury field campaigns he struggled to earn a sports in
a manner. and decided just walk north america second tier a for europe's top division the cage becoming a welcome addition to its newest addition gratian side medalist shark biggest obstacle was coming over and just basically put an n.h.l. on a hole like i had last three years and try to make it back and you know it just wasn't great fits for me. but over here i wanted to come play this is probably the first to go so the n.h.l. so for me i wanted to you know i had a high level still and coming over here i think prior to that opportunity it's been a long and rocky road a majority of that brought she was not a great women to be struck on making the occasional debut in their fifty fourth year while thirty three year old she too became the team's captain and made history by scoring there for us to have occasional gold had fun playing in madison they have been great fans over there and it was great for them. for me to be able to
experience that first call and how loud it got and how excited they were. just been having a lot of fun. i like the fans over here they really get into it you know pretty much every rink is a noisy rink and so. you know you get some places where you know maybe the fans are know as much about hockey as. they do over here i think pretty much everybody over here knows you know the game has spent around the game is can i play in canada i see. legs behind football in the sport lobbing contrails gradation mcmahon wish jock a very poor fuel or its home and have earned many admirers and rushes you to the attractive for an attacking style with just eleven games to go in their maiden regular season of the capital side a comfortably frame for the playoffs and almost sent for their debut in the knockout stages i think our job is just to get to the playoffs and then you know once you get to the playoffs anything can happen and it doesn't matter where you're
seated i think we're seeing in every every league a lot of times here an eight seed when said you know like where is it getting hot at the right time i think that's the key for us is the pick at the right time. if you can do that you get the goaltending behind you anything's possible however the biggest guys hold on to this season will take place in saatchi as the ball drops at the winter olympics on february the twelfth and with the world series being announced a month before the games start to choose expecting in memorable tournament. there's some solid looking teams. like. the u.s. or russia sweden. they all look pretty so you can never count the fans out they always come out and compete hard so. it's looking to be a. really high intensity you know i think it's going to be a great olympics washing with his old injury wounds from the n.h.l. now well behind him cheechoo is determined to lead his new team to glory and ensure
the twilight of his career sees the success in creation that he dreamed off back in canada. archie. and all that brings us with the two half time but we'll be back with the pots a packed with all build up to the winter olympics say change during the short break . because you don't states is the big dog the only hyper power and the cultural driving force of globalization it takes a lot of flack i mean globalization means the whole world gets hollywood and hot dogs not the other way around so let's take a break from the negativity and talk about something truly amazing about america and as a guy who lives in moscow i could say that the constitution of the united states is something truly amazing in russia there is constant talk about needing a new national idea
a new ideology or political theory or big changes to the russian constitution and so on and it's hard for people in america understand this but twice in the twentieth century the system that russians gave their lives for collapsed and the current constitution was written quickly after a period of violence and said collapse not after a glorious victory now you see why people here are exactly memorizing amendments and founding fathers quotes here in america there are debates between liberals and conservatives but almost everyone believes the constitution and it is america's greatest strength there is a national idea there is a sacred document with a list of rules as almost universally agreed upon everyone with half a brain on the street but sadly not in congress knows when something is against the constitution or should i see against america near universal belief in the constitution is actually something truly exceptional about america but that's just my opinion. previously peacekeepers for a president concerned with monitoring those post conflict environment nowadays
they're increasingly asked to operate in a high risk while being the bible says to lead. to stay. motionless with these people who have closed over almost twenty years for me and people few millions of this. based on refugees tens of thousands of women raped tens of thousands of children recruited the soldiers were all slaves no. right on the scene. first street. and i think you're. on our reporter's. instrument.
the enemy. welcome back to part two of the sports show now with the clock ticking down to the sochi olympics sports fans have been planning that journeys to get to the black sea resort but one russian will be doing it the hardest way as michael craft explains in the thirty one day run up to the twenty fourteen winter olympics there still bags of time for you to get to sochi from moscow you could actually fly there and back a whopping one hundred eighty times you could drive there and back thirty six times or even take the train thirty times but one man has decided to take a whole grass roots form of transportation that will give him only one realistic chance of making it to the opening ceremony on the seventh of february and that is by running and while the idea of traveling seven hundred kilometers on foot might
sound crazy the man attempting to do it isn't dimitri yet often is a seasoned runner of twenty two marathons and fifteen alterations including the grueling marathon the saab and the two hundred fifty kilometer run through the sahara desert but for this epic trek on home soil it often has one simple aim to do such. the main goal is just to complete the run i wanted to experience what it would be like to run such a distance seven hundred kilometers in thirty days i've run shorter distances in the past and i joined them but now i want to test myself against a four digit distance the idea for the moscow to start to run came when you know can realize that one of the world's biggest sporting events was about to take place in his country and he couldn't take part in it so we decided to run over fifty five kilometers a day for thirty days in order to reach the black sea resort in time for the opening ceremony on february the seventh while hoping to raise awareness of
a debilitating condition that's the second leading cause of death worldwide that the. another main goal of my run is to support the fight against stroke that fact that you can reduce the risk of having strokes by run in is one of the main reasons behind this which is also why it is a charity run while you're often is supporting the russian fight against stroke fund the run em self will also have backup on route. as his formidable olympic journey and the course he's hoping to promote have prompted others to run some of it by side. with a bricked when i first heard of the idea it inspired me and when i heard that me too it was running cologne over to help him realize his dream so i'll be following his every step and making sure he gets there you have a shot of what i wanted to support me three by riding with him at least at the beginning because i believe this is very important that such a moment for our country when the whole world will be watching us to be able to
take part in these grand to vand in some ways and i hope it will stay in people's hearts for a long time to come it often will be posting photos via instagram on the runs official website throughout the journey and so the nation and the rest of the world can give the support to this intrepid runner on his multi marathon journey to ensure he gets to the games on time but has genco r.t. moscow. and when those such a games get underway russia will be looking to take some medals in short track speed skating and rubber that on end tells us who and why. russia is still far from being a monk short tracks powerhouses but when it comes to speed skating everything may be changing fast last january the two thousand and thirteen european championships in sweden so the russians claim their first ever five thousand meter relay gold with one of the team's leaders. also a finish these two thousand and twelve success and clinching his second wife
hundred meter continental build a year on there is a huge opportunity to make it to the next level on home ice at the two thousand and fourteen olympic games in sochi. because i think for me it's not about extra pressure and all my home fan support can only encourage and boost my performance when it comes to the olympic games you always want to win when you feel the crowd is behind you that is something special it's a save bad the games will be really special for one of the most degraded athletes of the sport victor on this return olympic champion of cyrene two thousand and six for south korea was forced to leave his former team and country due to a conflict with the korean skating union vice president coach after missing the two thousand and ten games in vancouver and receiving russian citizenship twenty eight year old is looking forward to his olympic comeback in sochi. along with his
younger teammates to merely destroy others and all good believe who already tasted the flavor of the games in two thousand and clean the time to shine has finally come for us. of course this time around it is a different story first of all we're much better prepared now in terms of training staff equipment and medical service plus i've grown up again the limbic experience and confidence i don't feel any hyper pressure from media or friends of mine the games are coming soon but i sleep pretty well you know. i don't feel nervous ahead of the games we all feel like we've done so much to make it to the olympic team especially within the last season and it paid off the finish line is on the horizon we just need to show our best and such in russia head coach frenchman sebastiaan cross scotius in his olympic predictions but one can suspect is expectation straits
mush rather than his words we keep the same target for me to come back with at least one way down. because olympics is completely different competition so we can surely know what i watch and been ship but it's different completely different saw even if maybe we can do more if we can come back with one we don't need would be already a really really good the final pre-owned big test the two thousand and fourteen european championships will take place in dresden germany at the end of january. robert byrd of new york see mosca region. moving on to i saw he and alexander ovechkin backed fellow n.h.l. star pavel datsyuk to become the russian captain of the boats were named on the twenty five man allen pick squad you have get him out in goaltender some young valon off also made the cut after the first choice keeper assault charges of domestic violence against him dropped last month last time russia won an olympic
gold was back in one nine hundred ninety two as part of the unified team but says he must first focus on his washington capitals told before giving his all for his country. i don't think about sochi a lot because if i'm going to show it in for a treat i'm going to be kind of short on my game and here. you know i give a hundred percent of what i can to help her win you know some of. the point i was game before i began going to come straight into such a game. well it's been a big blow for the american team after star skier lindsey vonn pulled out of sorts because of a nagging me injury the twenty nine year old claims of the downhill gold in vancouver four years ago and says she's devastated not to be able to defend her title and could be set for more surgery on her right knee.
