From the AP:

Russia president Dmitry Medvedev demanded Monday that sports officials step down over the country's dismal performance at the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Russia, a traditional winter sports powerhouse, won just 15 medals -- with only three golds -- in one of its worst performances. Officials said before the Games that 30 medals and a top-three finish in the medal standings was the target. Russia placed 11th for golds and sixth in the overall medal count.
