Bryzgalova and her curling partner and husband, Alexandr Krushelnitskiy, lost their first match to the US, but went on to win Russia’s first-ever Olympic medal in curling after beating Norway in the bronze medal game 8-4.
Bryzgalova and Krushelnitskiy, who are both 25, were married last summer. They had to part ways with their former curling coach because he didn’t believe a curling couple who were a couple in real life could win in competition.
Bryzgalova’s gorgeous figure has the social media world swooning. Many are comparing her to Megan Fox and a young Angelina Jolie:
