Winter Olympics 2018: Husband and wife team win curling bronze medal

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. Anastasia Bryzgalova 2. Anastasia Bryzgalova's nails 3.

The fall drew gasps from a stunned crowd. Such falls are rare in professional curling.

Her team of Russian athletes ended up winning the bronze medal in mixed doubles curling after beating Norway 8-4.

Anastasia Bryzgalova is a curler and an Olympic athlete from Russian Federation - she is technically not representing Russian Federation, as explained here.

Curling has quickly become one of the most popular events at the Winter Olympics and that means there were plenty of eyes watching the two teams compete for the bronze.

Canada will face off against Switzerland later Tuesday in the mixed doubles gold medal match.

Another view of Bryzgalova's fall.

Following her dazzling display of skill on the ice, many went ahead of themselves and compared her to the likes of Angelina Jolie and Megan Fox.

Anatasia Bryzgalova is a world-class Olympic curler but she has captured the hearts and minds of the viewers in other ways.

The athlete married her curling partner Alexander Krushelnitskiy in June 2017 and the couple enjoyed a sun soaked honeymoon in Spain.

She and her husband won gold at the 2016 World Mixed Doubles Championship in Karlstad, Sweden.

But lest you think Anastasia is all looks and brawn, the athlete also comes equipped with a master's degree from the Lesgaft National State University of Physical Education, Sport and Health. At the same time, the IOC allowed clean athletes to participate in the upcoming games as "Olympic Athletes of Russian Federation".
