Congratulations, Kiku and Andrus!
These are big days for the whole of Estonia and our Tallinn office too. The winter olympics are huge in the Nordics. We won 3 olympic gold medals in a week, two of them by our skiing queen Kristina Šmigun (but she likes to be called “Kiku”), and just now, a third one by Andrus Veerpalu in men’s 15 km. Productivity is horribly down in many offices across Estonia, including Skype Tallinn site, as everyone watches the event congratulations to our champions.

We’re happy that [Skype has contributed its small part in keeping Kiku's family together and informed](http://www.postimees.ee/170206/esileht/sport/192332.php).
> “My mom and sister are very happy for me”, said Šmigun whose family in America is watching her Olympic performance over internet.
“I heard that during the competition, they called our neighbours in our home town Otepää with Skype, who then used a tiny webcam to “broadcast” the show,” Šmigun told. “The picture was not very legible but they are up-to-date and informed.”
