Russian curler Anastasia Bryzgalova and her husband Alexander Krushelnitskiy defeated the Norwegian team of Kristin Skaslien and Magnus Nedregotten to win the bronze medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. In addition to the 2016 World Mixed Championship in Kazan, Russia, they also won the 2016 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship in Karlstad, Sweden. She was also given the honorary title of “Honored Master of Sports of the Russian Federation” in 2016. While her partner plays as a skip, she typically plays as a vice or third. For the St. Petersburg CC Adamant curling club, both play professionally. With the help of Instagram photos from her performances, workouts, and romantic getaways with her husband, she has since gained notoriety on social media in the wake of her time spent competing in the Winter Olympics.

Become a Star

It’s fascinating to note that Anastasia Bryzgalova’s rise to stardom during the Winter Olympics in February 2018 wasn’t just due to her incredible on-ice performance. She actually rose to internet fame during the games as a result of her mesmerizing appearance and piercing gaze, which some captivated admirers remarked: “can burn holes in the sheet.” Fans were more interested in appreciating her toned supermodel-like form on her Instagram profile than her enthusiastic display throughout the sporting event.

Even some of her followers started equating her with famous people like Adriana Lima, Megan Fox, and Angelina Jolie. She was overcome by the unexpected internet outrage she sparked, but she didn’t let it distract her from her goal of winning a medal in a recent interview with the Russian website Although she acknowledged that getting praise on her appearance was flattering, she quickly added that it wouldn’t help her win medals because “medals are not given for beauty.” Fortunately, curling, which wasn’t a particularly popular sport before the Winter Games, has seen a substantial increase in spectators, thanks largely to her online stardom, as fans who weren’t familiar with curling turned in for the event to see her.

A career in the Profession

Anastasia Bryzgalova decided to give professional curling a try after becoming captivated by a curling club’s advertisement at an ice sports facility. She and Krushelnitskiy made their imprint on the world of curling in 2016 by defeating the Chinese team of Ba Dexin and Wang Rui 7-5 in the World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship final in Karlstad, Sweden. In the same year, she won another gold medal in the World Mixed Championship in Kazan, Russia. She competed as a member of a team with Krushelnitskiy and two other women.

Even though they had performed well in the group stages of the 2017 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship in Lethbridge, Canada, the Chinese team of Ba Dexin and Wang took sweet retribution in the Round of 16 games and ended their title run. They competed in the inaugural mixed doubles category at the Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea, in 2018, and although losing to Switzerland in the semifinals, they managed to win the bronze medal. They were among the 168 Russian athletes who competed in the Winter Olympics under the name “Olympic Athletes from Russia,” donning neutral clothing, as the country was not officially invited owing to a state-sponsored doping scandal.

Disputes and scandals

Alexander Krushelnitskiy and Anastasia Bryzgalova were compelled to break off their relationship with their former coach because he believed that couples who are also athletes could not be successful together, particularly in mixed doubles curling. Following a few missed shots in their semifinal Winter Games match against Swiss duo Jenny Perret and Martin Rios, they were clearly agitated with one another. She did, however, say, via a translator to ESPN following their bronze medal victory, “It was possible for them to overcome the previous day’s setback and put up a good enough show to win the medal because they were family.” Even though it is only a bronze medal, she said, it was very significant to them.
