(0 votes, average 0 out of 5)

World and Olympic rhythmic champion Alina Kabayeva is set to marry outgoing Russian President Vladimir Putin, a Russian newspaper printed Monday.

"Moscow Correspondent" published that Putin, 55, divorced his wife two months ago, and plans to marry Kabayeva, 25, in June.

Kabayeva won the all-around bronze medal at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney and the gold medal at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. She has won numerous world and European titles, and was stripped of her gold medals at the 2001 World Championships for testing positive for diuretics at the Goodwill Games a few months earlier.

 Kabayeva retired in 2004 and made a brief comeback attempt in 2006. In 2007 she was elected to the Russian parliament, representing Putin's United Russia party.

Putin was elected as Russian president in 1999 and his second term expires in May.
