Unfortunately the guests afterwards received racy videos featuring the bride, allegedly sent by the disgruntled wife of her alleged billionaire tycoon lover. The messages appeared as the groom’s male friends were throwing him in the air in a traditional dance, and while the female guests were celebrating the marriage in a nearby room. A visibly angry Sidakov then found his bride and pulled her away by the hair.Madina was taken to hospital by her friends and family, and is now reportedly hiding in Moscow. Her father suffered a heart attack in the wake of the wedding scandal, according to reports. Friends of the groom took him away from the party and into the mountains to “come to his senses and not to do anything rash”. The revelation came as “complete surprise” to Sidakov, and came after guests provided wedding gifts worth more than £80,000.

Accused Chinese Mar-a-Lago Intruder Wants to Represent Herself at Trial

Posted on

first_imgA Chinese woman charged with illegally entering President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort wants to represent herself in court.This morning a federal judge is set to rule on whether Yujing Zhang can fire her public defenders and represent herself. Zhang has pleaded not guilty to charges of trespassing at Mar-a-Lago and lying to Secret Service agents. Agents arrested the 33-year-old in March 2019 after they say she lied her way past several security checkpoints and onto Mar-a-Lago property. She later told the club’s receptionist she was there to attended a United Nations Chinese American Association event; an event which did not exist.Once detained, agents say they found Zhang carrying four cellphones, an external hard drive and a thumb drive with computer malware; prosecutors later said when the thumb drive was tested a second time the malware could not be detected.In her hotel room, investigators say they also found $8,000 in cash, nine USB drives, five SIM cards and a device that could possibly be used to detect hidden cameras.Last week, the assistant federal public defender wrote in court documents that Zhang would not meet with a psychologist but has appeared mentally competent in interviews with her attorneys.If convicted, Zhang faces up to five years in prison.Her hearing is scheduled for 10 a.m. Tuesday at the federal courthouse in Fort Lauderdale.last_img read more

Colorado pair leads Wisconsin

Posted on

first_imgJunior Tyler Graff (above) and Freshman Connor Medbary are the most recent graduates of Loveland High School in Colorado to be recruited by the Wisconsin wrestling team.[/media-credit]It’s pretty rare to have two solid high school wrestlers from the same state decide on the same collegiate wrestling program 1,000 miles away from home. It’s a whole different story when those two wrestlers combined for seven state championships while competing for the same high school and are dominating at the collegiate level in the most difficult wrestling conference in the country.Both redshirt junior Tyler Graff and redshirt freshman Connor Medbery decided on the University of Wisconsin wrestling program coming from Loveland High School in northern Colorado and have been Wisconsin’s two best wrestlers this season, with both being ranked every week since the start of the year.Graff and Medbery are currently ranked in the top ten of the 133-pound and heavyweight weight classes, respectively.Head coach Barry Davis said it’s not every day you see two teammate wrestlers who combined for six undefeated seasons and a totaled 323-3 record in high school.“Those guys are rare,” Davis said. “To have that type of athletic talent and that they came from the same high school.”The relationship between Graff and Medbery began well before high school. The pair was part of a small group of wrestlers from Loveland who trained and wrestled throughout grade school together starting at an early age.Entering his first year of high school, Medbery already knew the talent and work ethic of Graff, who had won three state championships before Medbery was even out of eighth grade. He said his other teammates quickly respected Graff just as much for what he had already accomplished at Loveland High School.“We had a good friendship, definitely,” Medbery said. “All of the other underclassmen looked up to Ty to see how he was working hard, so when it was time to wrestle, everybody knew this wasn’t a time to mess around. It was a time to wrestle, so everybody could stay focused.”The admiration for Graff, however, was not one-sided. Graff knew of Medbery’s dedication and talent long before Medbery joined Graff on the high school team.“I knew even before [high school],” Graff said. “The way he held himself to standards already gave me an idea of how I should look at him. I didn’t see him as some typical high school wrestler; he was somebody who could take it all.”Graff and Medbery are not the first two successful wrestlers to come out of Loveland. Tom Clum was a two-time All-American for Wisconsin in the 2004-05 and 2005-06 seasons after wrestling for Loveland High School.As a 133-pound wrestler like Graff, Clum had an enormous influence on Graff becoming a Badger three years after his graduation. He is now a top club-level coach back in Colorado.Davis said Clum was one of the most technical wrestlers he has ever coached and noted that he is a trustworthy candidate to take references from in regards to recruiting.“With the techniques he knows and the skills he teaches, it’s unbelievable,” Davis said. “So when Tommy Clum recommends somebody, that’s high praise … Tommy Clum has helped take [Colorado] to a whole different level, wrestling knowledge wise.”The Loveland lineage continued when Graff recommended the promising Medbery to wrestle as a Badger. Graff and Medbery have been two of Wisconsin’s best wrestlers in recent memory – Graff has been a two-time All American in his two full seasons on the team, and Medbery has won 11 of 12 dual matches in his first season competing as a Badger. Davis said he’s been pleased with the performance of his star wrestlers with both their athletics and academics.“They’re both very focused in the classroom, out of the classroom, on the mat,” Davis said. “They have high expectations in both areas, and they’re both high achievers.”The success of the Loveland natives at the collegiate level partially comes from the mutual weight trainer that Graff and Medbery worked out with in high school. Graff met volunteer trainer Dave Jackson coming into high school when Jackson noticed that Graff needed some help with his form in the weight room.Medbery starting training with Jackson when in eighth grade he decided to join Graff and Jackson at an open practice session.“He knew what we needed to do, how to get stronger,” Medbery said. “He knew our goals, too. He knew that Tyler wanted to be a national champion and same with me … He really pushed us. I think he has a mindset that he wants to help the kids, he does everything for free, so he’s just a great guy that wants to help out the community and help kids get better.”last_img read more
