    Russia’s bronze medal-holding curler, Anastasia Bryzgalova, who was deemed the most beautiful sportswoman of the Pyeongchang Olympics, has shared details on the most prominent event last year - her marriage to her sport partner.

    The 25 year-old beauty married her team partner Alexander Krushelnitsky in June 2017.

    "Sasha proposed to me on the Red Square, where we had a weekend walk while in Moscow’s training camp in Novogorsk [Olympic village]. He just fell on his knees and I quickly said yes."

    The wedding took place in Saint Petersburg, Russia’s northern capital, with around 40 invited guests– mainly relatives and close friends. Though she hasn’t yet changed her last name to her husband’s just yet, she is most certainly planning to:

    "It doesn’t bother me at all if I’ll be known under my own last name.  Recognition is not everything!  Fame is not my primary goal in life!" she exclaimed.
