Possible Protest Of Anti-Gay Law

After winning the 4x400-meter relay at World Athletics Championships Saturday, runners Tatyana Firova and Kseniya Ryzhova shared a kiss. Then the gold medalists kissed again during the award ceremony.
While some speculated that the Russian athletes' kiss on the winners podium was an apparent jab at the country's anti-gay law, local media questioned whether it was a political gesture or simply a congratulatory embrace.
