      Don't feel BAD. Puerto Rican have some things that make the dot of an island above others around the globe in ONLY a few things.. Not all is good. Of course.
      MISS Universe and this beauty contests are always known to get a Puertorican woman elected to tops. Usually. Nothing new.

      Boxing. The boxer with most consecutive wins by knock out for a belt was a puertorican. And the youngest boxer was too.
      There are other things. Car racing.
      A VOLKSWAGEN.. YES a BEETLE defeated once an all racing car in Puerto Rico. I saw a video.. Is old/. They sent a corporate sponsored I think a FUNNY CAR category.
      The small beetle, defeated it.
      Don't ask. I don't recall which engine was. But I THINK it was a Volks engine modified. Heavily.
      And other stuff..

      So don't feel bad in that area. But congrats. Means TIME to get better Russian candidates..Ain't it?
