A RUSSIAN athlete has heated up the Winter Olympics after fans went wild on Twitter over her "model looks".
Stunning Russian curler Anastasia Bryzgalova has captured hearts across the world.
The 25-year-old is a world champion at the sport, having won the 2016 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship with husband and curling partner Alexander Krushelnitskiy.
But it’s Bryzgalova’s face, and not her achievements, which is apparently garnering the most interest online.
Winter Olympic viewers have been left stunned by her features.
And many have been bowled over by some bikini pictures on social media.
