By MSN.ca, August 11, 2011 3:26 PM Sorry if this has been posted already, did a search and couldn't find anything for Vladimir Putin. Just thought I would share the story. I logged onto the internet and the 1st story that popped up was about Putin and listed there was badminton so I just had to read more into it. This is what I saw haha.
