While Russia itself was officially banned from the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, some Russia athletes have made the trip to compete under neutral colors. One of those athletes is a member of their curling team: the gorgeous Anastasia Bryzgalova.
Bryzgalova, a 25-year-old from Russia, went viral on Twitter due to her incredible good looks and sharp blue eyes. While Russia itself is not actually participating in the games, we sure are glad that AnastasiaBryzgalova is.

Russian curler Anastasia Bryzgalova, 25, has set pulses racing among viewers who are glued to proceedings in Pyeongchang who have been impressed not only by her prowess on the ice but her piercing stare, which makes her look like ‘she can burn holes in the sheet with her eyes’.
The athlete married her curling partner Alexander Krushelnitskiy in June 2017 and the couple enjoyed a sun soaked honeymoon in Spain. The pair won the 2016 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship in Karlstad, Sweden.
Anastasia took up the sport in 2009 after being attracted by an advertisement for a curling club at an ice sports complex and has a master’s degree from the Lesgaft National State University of Physical Education, Sport and Health.
As everyone knows, Russia is not officially competing in the Winter Olympic Games due to the fallout from the nation’s state-sponsored doping scandal. However, 168 clean athletes are taking part wearing neutral colors as “Olympic Athletes from Russia.”
