Canada win inaugural mixed doubles curling gold

Canada win inaugural mixed doubles curling gold

Now, Bryzgalova is in the news again, after she fell on the ice during her final Olympic match.

She was standing with her teammate and strategising over where to send their last rock of the third end when she suddenly seemed to lose her footing. She promptly landed on her backside.

Fans are going wild for her model looks.

She displays brilliant form, performing deadlifts with a smile.

The fall drew gasps from a stunned crowd. The other shoe is known as a "slider" - it has a very slippery Teflon sole that helps the curlers glide. Fortunately, she recovered seconds later.

Despite a highly unusual tumble on the ice, a team of Russian athletes roared back to win the bronze medal in mixed doubles curling by beating Norway 8-4 on Tuesday.

The win moves OAR's medal count at the 2018 PyeongChang Olympics up to 3 (1 silver, 2 bronze). The event is making its Olympic debut in Pyeongchang.

Canada and Switzerland will compete for the gold in the mixed doubles curling event Tuesday morning.

Another view of Bryzgalova's fall.

Admirers have likened her looks to Adriana Lima, Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie.

However, that is not the only reason why the 25-year-old Anastasia has left everyone drooling on her.

If there is one Olympic sport that everyone thinks they can do successfully it has to be curling. She is married to a fellow curler, her doubles partner, Aleksandr Krushelnitckii. According to her Olympic profile, she has "studied [for] a master's degree at the Lesgaft National State University of Physical Education, Sport and Health in St. Petersburg, Russian Federation".

In clips posted on her Instagram page, you see Anastasia Bryzgalova showing off her impressive figure off the ice.
