After winning the 4×400-meter relay at the World Athletics Championships in Moscow on Saturday, Russian runners Tatyana Firova and Kseniya Ryzhova shared a kiss, setting off a flurry of speculation over their intentions.

While many think the kiss was in defiance of Russia’s anti-gay propaganda law, both athletes said they were just celebrating their victory.

The law, signed by Russian President Vladimir Putin in June, imposes fines and up to 15 days in prison for violators while foreigners can be deported.
