Love Story of Olympic Heroes: Vic And Alena

Posted on February 24, 2014 by team


She came to their first date with her torn knee ligaments, and he came to Novosibirsk from remote America to give her a bar of Russian chocolate “Alenka”. Their love story has already touched hearts of millions of sports fans.

Snowboarder Victor Wild was born and raised in an American city White Salmon, Washington. However he didn’t represent the USA at the Sochi Olympics, but opted to represent Russia. He became the first American flying the colors of the Russian flag at a winter Olympics.

His life seriously changed in 2011. By that time, Wild, aged 24, had never been even in the top five in slalom at the World Cup.
He was not satisfied by his own sports results and poor financial support from the American side and even planned to leave sport. He didn’t have enough motivation.

He met a Russian snowboarder Alena Zavarzina in 2009 during another sports competition.
