     PRESIDENT OF THE RUSSIAN FEDERATION

      O. G. GRISHUK

Dear Oksana Vladimirovna!

Heartfelt congratulations to you for your outstanding sports
 victory, a gold medal from the 28th Olympic games!

The title of olympic champion is the cherished goal of every sportsman,
and you achieved it once again, reaffirming the fame of Russian sport.
  In a difficult tense struggle with distinguished rivals, your duet with
Evgeny Platov displayed enormous will, character and high skill.

Millions of Russians, your fans,, including even  the
president,  followed your performance with excitement,  relied on you,
and believed in your success.   And you didn't fail,  wonderfully
 presenting an impressive performance in the sport of ice dancing.
Your brilliant appearance won the hearts of lovers of figure
skating.  We thank you!

The Olympiad in Nagano is behind,  ahead are new, crucial
competitions.  With all my heart,  I wish to you, Oksana Vladimirovna,
new triumphs in sport and in your private life!

28 February 1998            B. Yeltsin
