Twitterians can’t stop admiring the Russian Olympic curler Anastasia Bryzgalova, whose looks are being compared to Hollywood stars Angelina Jolie and Meghan Fox.
Probably Winter Olympic viewers had never been as excited about curling… as when they saw the drop-dead gorgeous 25-year-old Russian athlete.
Bryzgalova is a world champion at sport; together with her husband and curling partner, Alexandr Krushelnitsky, she won the 2016 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship.
But it was Bryzgalova’s good looks that made social media users go wild; with many saying they have finally found a reason to watch curling.
Jason Thorpe tweeted: “If you are not interested in curling or the Winter Olympics Put BBC 1 on now You may just find an interest in it #anastasiabryzgalova.”
Cedar Posts said on Twitter: “I stayed up late last night, I’m beat and it’s only noon. It’s all Anastasia Bryzgalova’s fault. I was totally awe struck over the sport of curling. A sport I consider about as interesting as watching paint dry suddenly has my attention! #RussianCurling #AnastasiaBryzgalova”
Others started comparing her to Angelina Jolie in her twenties… Some even “fell in love” with the Russian beauty.
