A glamorous Russian curler who has caught the eye of Winter Olympics fans took a tumble on the ice as she competed in Curling Mixed Doubles Bronze Medal.Curling may not be the most popular sport but in the past few days it's gained a whole new fan base thanks to Anastasia Bryzgalova, 25, who has impressed viewers with her passionate displays on the ice, piercing eyes and model looks.And she put on a suitably animated display as she shouted instructions in the crucial fixture against Norway last night with her curling partner and husband Alexander Krushelnitskiy in Pyeongchang.But at one point she accidentally backed into the curling stone and tripped over it.However she soon bounced back to secure the bronze and the couple are now the first duo to win a medal in mixed doubles curling in Olympic history.'It's very important that we are family,' she told ESPN through a translator. 'That was very important to survive yesterday's loss just to come out here today and to make the match that we can be proud about. The fact that we are family helped us a lot.'Admirers on Twitter have compared her to some of the world's most beautiful women including Adriana Lima, Megan Fox and Angelina Jolie.The athlete married her curling partner Alexander Krushelnitskiy in June 2017 and the couple enjoyed a sun soaked honeymoon in Spain.The pair won the 2016 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship in Karlstad, Sweden.Anastasia took up the sport in 2009 after being attracted by an advertisement for a curling club at an ice sports complex and has a master's degree from the Lesgaft National State University of Physical Education, Sport and Health.Away from the ice rink, the athlete hones her figure with weightlifting in the gym and volleyball, delighting Instagram fans with her bikini-clad snaps on Instagram.Although Russia is not officially competing in the Games in the wake of the nation's state-sponsored doping scandal.However, 168 evidently clean athletes are taking part under the banner of 'Olympic Athlete from Russia', wearing neutral colours.Mixed doubles curling is one of four new events in the 2018 Winter Olympics and was the first to kick off official competition last Thursday.Anastasia and Alexander were beaten in their first batch by siblings Becca and Matt Hamilton from the US and became visibly agitated with each other following some missed shots.
