Could anyone imagine President Barack Obama protraying himself as a tough guy? Of course not, since he would make Pajama Boy appear machismo in comparison. Nevertheless, Russian President Vladimir Putin has earned distinction for being a true roughneck for wrestilng bears with his bare hands, along with hunting and fishing on a regular basis.

According to Fox News, "Russian President Vladimir Putin showed he’s taking Olympic hosting duties seriously when he took the ice with the leader of Belarus and some former hockey stars in Sochi over the weekend."

Putin played the role as his team's hockey enforcer and even spent time in the penalty box for occassional scrapes against the oppossing team.

As reported by Fox News, "Putin laced up his skates and donned a full uniform with Belarussian leader Alexander Lukashenko to face off against National Hockey League legends Pavel Bure and Vyacheslav Fetisov in a pickup game at the Olympic hockey arena Saturday, according to a report in the Moscow Times."

Putin's team won 12-3.
