Harper, Obama to skip Russia Olympics

Neither Prime Minister Harper nor U-S President Barack Obama say they'll attend the Sochi Winter Olympics.

Although Harper's office is giving no reason, there's speculation of an international snub over Russia's clampdown on gay rights.

The 2010 Vancouver Winter Games were the only Olympics that Harper has attended since becoming prime minister almost eight years ago.

The Sochi Winter games begin February 7th.
