Lilia Podkopayeva to Get a Divorce

Several Russian and Ukrainian sites (among others, this one) are reporting that 1996 Olympic champion Lilia Podkopayeva is getting a divorce from her husband of four years, Timofey Nagorniy. Apparently, Lilia initiated the divorce, but Timofey made the formal application. The couple's two children, Vadim (adopted) and Karolina (their own), will stay with Lilia, but Timofey will have unlimited access to them. It sounds like the couple are parting on good terms.
