On his late-night show Conan, comedian and host Conan O'Brien hit back against Russian homophobia in a hilarious segment where he translated the "real" Russian names for popular Olympic sports. (Speedskating becomes "Catch the Leader's Butt" and snowboarding becomes "Straddling the Wood and Swinging Both Ways.")

It's a quick, fun watch. Enjoy!
