Curling Crazy

No, this is not about hair; I’ve been watching the Olympics.

Chloe Kim may be a snowboarding phenom and Tara Lipinski and Johnny Weir’s biting skating commentary and matching outfits have been hilarious, but curling has caught my, and seemingly everyones, attention. Could it be the stunning Russian curler Anastasia Bryzgalova?

Anastasia and her husband won the bronze and now I’m hooked on curling—go figure.

  • I’m totally hooked on…snowboarding!?!? Both slope style and half pike. Chloe Kim and Jamie Anderson are amazing.

  • Anastasia Bryzgalova is stunning. No stylist, no cosmetic sponsor, no editorial in Vogue (yet). A woman athlete without artifice, healthy body, competing alongside a man. Yes, stunning.

  • Ditto to Lorraine’s comment I was struck be her focus and intensity- impressive!

  • Being Canadian it is sometimes thought to be a prerequisite that you follow curling but for me it was always something my grandparents did UNTIL they had a Brier in London and my oldest daughter convinced us to buy a ticket package. I’m now a total convert. It is definitely one of those sports that once you see it live and witness the intensity and physical prowess at that high level, you’ll never underestimate it again.

  • Yes! So naturally beautiful. Her looks remind me of former Olympic figure skater, Ekatarina Gordeava.

  • Crazy but curling is the most watch Olympic sport in our house this year…Must be something in the stars.
