Russian President Vladimir Putin has a girlfriend. An extremely flexible one.
Alina Kabaeva is a retired rhythmic gymnast who won gold at the 2004 Athens Olympics and has appeared on the cover of Russian Vogue. Putin divorced his wife back in 2008 to be with Kabaeva, and he may have actually married her last year, but nobody really knows that for sure.
According to The Wire, Kabaeva may light the Olympic torch during the opening ceremony on Friday. Here are some photos of her being all flexible.
