Out of a field of 12 pigs in the roughly 4-meter sprint, the Russians dominated, capturing first and second place, with the French taking third. The Ukrainians, Chinese, Canadians and Latvians went home without medals.

With 300 people in attendance, the Sunday spectacle was one of the main draws at ZooRussia 2006 at Crocus Expo, which featured numerous merchants hawking organic dog food, kitty litter and poodle vests.

Kostik Rystish Shvain, 2 1/2 years old, won the race. "He's the smartest, fastest, slyest and bravest of all," Kostik's manager, Konstantin Petrunin, explained.
