Alex Ovechkin thrilled after his girlfriend wins bronze at Olympics

Aug 5, 2012, 11:06 PM EDT


Alex Ovechkin knows what it’s like to participate in the Olympics only to leave empty handed, so maybe he can appreciate his girlfriend’s, Maria Kirilenko, bronze medal showing in the 2012 Summer Olympics just a little bit more than most people.

Ovechkin certainly seemed thrilled on Twitter when he said, and I quote, “Maria!!!! Nadia!!! Medals!! and Me!! Hahahaah!” The tweet also includes the picture that you can see to your right.

Nadia, by the way, is Nadia Petrova, Maria’s tennis partner in the Olympic Games.

Ovechkin went on to tweet, “Thats my prize for Olympic games…we going back to Moscow. We gonna have a gr8 time there!!!hhaahah!!bronzeeeeee”

To paraphrase Kellie Cowan of CSN Washington, you can tell he’s particularly happy based on the number of excess exclamation points and vowels used.

In all seriousness, congratulations are in order to Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova, and Ovechkin is euphoria is certainly justified.

    If you know Alex, you know this isn’t his only girlfriend. Duece Bigalo comes to mind.

      I’m guessing that stick put a whipping on you, too. It’s alright, no need to blush.

    Does she put a bag over his face before they fornicate?

      There are faces only mothers could love… and then there are the Ovechkins. Seriously, one look at his mother and you’ll think he got off lucky.

        You can say that as you hide behind your computer screen. I just wonder what you and your mother look like. I’m sure you and your family aren’t gracing the cover of any beauty magazines. Grow up. The ugliness you have inside is showing.

      Do you put a bag over your face before you get yourself off?

    Man, even when he’s talking about someone else, he finds a way to make it about him. I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised. To this day I still haven’t seen anyone else try to steal the puck off his own man and get slashed for it before. Just Captain Team Player up there.

      I think you are just stupid.

    “try to steal the puck off his own man” …

    danphipps – excellent comment … with all kidding aside, that is “exactly” why I dislike Ovechkin so vehemently … he’s quite simply an immature, conceited, albeit “talented” goof, who’s only in it for himself … I recall a Saturday night game here in Vancouver this past year, where this clown was constantly dangling his leg over the boards at the bench, essentially telling his teammates on the ice … “yeah, yeah, yeah, just hurry up and get off the ice already, because “I” need to get out there again” …

    in many ways, Ovechkin reminds me a lot of Pavel Bure … I’ll never forget this game against the Kings in circa ’96, where the Canucks were losing something like 7-1 in the 3rd period and then Bure scored his “60th” to make it 7-2 … despite the fact that the Canucks were being pummeled, he saw to it to jump up and down like he had just scored a Stanley Cup winner …

      So you saw a game in Vancouver? I’m guessing that was the only game you saw Ovechkin play and from that one game you decided he is immature, conceited and apparently not a team player. I am a Caps fan and have watched nearly every game Ovechkin has played since he entered the league. When he was younger, he did show the usual immaturity players display; however, he has grown up a bit. You think he is selfish because his leg was hanging over the boards? I hope he never loses that enthusiasm to get back on the ice. I can honestly say Ovechkin is a team player, he is all about the team. If you had seen him play more the ONE game, you would see that his reaction when a teammate scores is just as joyous, and sometimes more joyous than when he himself scores. There is no player that shows his passion and love for hockey more the Alex. You should be embarrassed for disliking a player because he loves the game. There is no player in the entire league I would take over Ovechkin, not one. If you are jealous because he doesn’t play on your team, I get that, but you shouldn’t hate him because of it.

        God bless you friend …

        Ovechkin is obviously your hero and therefore I will “stand down”. In fact, I believe that you’re to be commended for coming to the defense of your hero in such a “spirited and virtuous” manner, as that is the sign of a “true” fan … God knows that I would do the same if anyone ever questioned the fortitude of my heroes (ie: Jonathan Quick, Drew Doughty and company). Nonetheless, I do suggest that you “take it easy” with the personal insults, unless you wish to come to the attention of my gun captains ? I’ll have you know that I was a “Canadian” fan of Soviet hockey some 40 years ago, during the greatest series that was ever played ! Tretiak, Kharlamov, Maltsev, Petrov, Mikhailov and Gusev will “forever” be some of my “greatest” heroes of all time ! Those men played for “country and pride” and nothing more … they were not “petulant” punks playing for 10 million dollars a year ! The again, today forty years later, we’re living in a much different world with different norms and values … and so I’ll that there, as you likely mean well.

        *** here’s an example of truly “glorious” Russian hockey ***

    I bet you will never see a guy score a goal sliding on his back over his head either all haters will be sorry this year

    • atwatercrushesokoye - Aug 6, 2012 at 9:27 PM

      Best goal I’ve ever seen! You can feel however you want about AO (I personally think he’s awesome) but no one can discount how amazing that goal was.

  7. ravenscaps48 - Aug 6, 2012 at 2:31 PM

    I am willing to bet money that Ovechkin will score at least 50 Goals this year. He knows that Semin is no longer there so he will step up his game. Haters Beware!

    As usual, any article about Ovi is written in a way that makes him sound like it’s all about him. The tweet where he comments about “That’s my prize for the Olympic games”, was accompanied with a picture of his girlfriend kissing him on the cheek. It was quite obvious he was referring to the kiss as his prize, but of course the guy writing this article didn’t include that info. Better to let Ovechkin look like a jerk. I watched most of the tennis matches that Maria played in and, of course they were often showing shots of Ovechkin in the stands. Every time she won Ovi was shown standing, applauding and grinning from ear to ear. When she wasn’t doing so well, they showed him not looking too happy. When she won the medal he had his phone out taking photos of her and again grinning from ear to ear. Just so you know, you shouldn’t believe most of the articles on this site about most of the players, they are usually incomplete stories and usually biased.

      Couldn’t agree more PHT loves to chop and paste articles. We all know if this was CRYbaby, Nash or Malkin instead of Ovi.. PHT and the rest of the flock of sheep would be tickle pink and sing their praises.

      Ovi is growing into a great captain and play-maker. Cant wait til Oct 12th!
