What is it about Canadian women that makes them seem so down-to-earth and accessible? Like you could chat them up in a pub and it’d be relaxing and fun? Ms. Gough here just barely missed getting a medal in a tough match.
This Latvian cutie is only 18 years old and already representing her country at Sochi. The Luge is brutal – she placed 18th in women’s singles – and total, she only had a 4.9 second time differential off from Natalie Geisenberger, the gold medalist!
Sochi is this beautiful Canadian’s Olympic debut! We love that she’s a hard working college student at the University of Calgary who also loves biking and the great outdoors. Watch the video below after the gallery to hear her speak – we can definitely hear the Canadian accent and Canada pride!
We have to say: we certainly found this video very entertaining. If you watch closely, you’ll see some of our favorite curlers, including Kaitlyn Lawes, Jennifer Jones and fan favorite Anna Sidorova screaming their hearts out. Who would have thought curling was such an intense sport? If you’re at work, you probably want to put some headphones on when you listen to this … and you probably want to watch somewhere alone to contain your laughing.
Now, if you don’t mind, we’ll be busy trying to figure out how to set this as our ringtones.
Valeriya, or Valerie as she sometimes refers to herself, will be making history as the first athlete from Kazakhstan to compete in snowboarding events at the Sochi winter games in 2014! She’s a total underdog, with her coach being her father, who taught her to snowboard at a young age. When she first started, she used her father’s equipment, which was four sizes too large for her. I don’t know about you guys, but when I hear this story, I can’t help but cheer for her.
We expect her to compete in parallel slalom and parallel giant slalom. Qualifications don’t start until February 19th, which is probably why you haven’t heard of her before. We love underdogs, and we wish this beautiful lady all the luck in her upcoming events!
You guys loved our recent coverage of the most beautiful Norweigan women. If you thought we weren’t going to cover Russia, you were wrong. Russia came to Sochi with a mission: make sure people leave knowing that Russia has some of the most beautiful women in the world. They came to the games with something to prove, and brought their A-game, having many of their athletes participate in incredibly sexy lingerie shoots. So – without further adieu, we present to you our list of the 10 most beautiful women competing in Russia.
If you don’t know what the skeleton is, watch this video. It’s freakin’ crazy!
Olga won’t be the last curling team member you see on our list, but she’s certainly not forgettable.
I would never have associated “hockey” with “beautiful girls” before Sochi. I do now.
Seriously, mad props to the photographer. These are some sexy outfits!
We’ve mentioned Alena before in our list of hottest snowboarders, but she deserves a mention again. Something about the mix of the swimsuit and snow is too sexy for words.
