Is there another Russian curler to look out for now that Anastasia Bryzgalova’s PyeongChang campaign has concluded? We’re happy to say the answer is, “Yes!” That’s vice-skip Uliana Vasileva in the gallery above, she’s competing in the women’s round robin event — the Olympic Athletes from Russia are currently 1-1.
According to her Olympics profile, she randomly got into the sport “by accident” and didn’t know anything about it:

“I got into curling by accident. I was at home when [Russian curler] Alina Kovaleva called me and suggested I try myself in curling. I went to the Russian under-19 championships without knowing the rules and having no idea about this sport.”

Uliana won a gold medal at the 2016 Euro Curling Championships with Team Russia.
