The hockey player has put themselves in order before taking in the Kremlin.
Sportsmen — people superstitious. Everyone has some “chips”, which, as many think, help them in the competition. Despite the fact that hockey player Ilya Kovalchuk has repeatedly said that you just have to do their job, as it turned out, he believes one of the most popular take. It is believed that if the whole team would not shave during an important competition, they will win the Cup. Well, Olympic gold, as in our case.
“I will not speak for the whole team”, but Ilya Kovalchuk did not shave since the beginning fees, which this year took place in Japan. This is almost a month hockey player forgot about shaving supplies and was able to grow a pretty decent beard. In ordinary life, the Olympic champion still tries to be a smoothly shaven, unlike his teammates, Ivan Telegin, who is always seen with a beard.
By the way, fans came to the conclusion that maybe the player should reconsider their attitude to facial hair, as black beard Kovalchuk really is. But Ilya shaved it off the next day after returning from Pyeongchang and at the solemn reception in the Kremlin, which yesterday was awarded the Olympians, have already appeared in its usual form.
We will remind, for “gold” at the Olympics, Kovalchuk received from the state an impressive cash prize and cool SUV BMW X6 with the nominal numbers. However, according to the laws of the Russian Federation to ride on the roads of the country, with “Gosznak” impossible. For that any person faces a fine and even suspension of driving privileges for several months. Anyone, but not the player of national team of Russia on hockey, each of which today are the true national heroes!
