Anastasia Bryzgalova is a curler and an Olympic athlete from Russia — she is technically not representing Russia, as explained here.

Some even compared her to American actress Megan Fox.
But there’s some sad news for the new fans of the sport.
Bryzgalova is married to her curling partner, Aleksandr Krushelnitskiy.
The United States team, comprised of siblings Matt and Becca Hamilton, beat Bryzgalova and Krushelnitskiy earlier in the games.
