Alex Ovechkin Fired Up About Girlfriend Maria Kirilenko’s Bronze Medal

1,345

Maria Kirilenko won a bronze medal at the Olympics, and Alex Ovechkin is jacked and pumped.

Kirilenko, who is dating Ovechkin, won bronze in tennis doubles alongside Nadia Petrova. The pair defeated Liezel Huber and Lisa Raymond in three sets (4-6, 6-4, 6-1) Sunday, and Ovechkin quickly made his feelings known via Twitter.

The Capitals star tweeted out the following, which truly encapsulates his jubilation.

Between the use of "gr8," the excessive exclamation points, the apparent laughter and the emphasis on "bronzeeeeee," this is a Grade-A tweet from Ovechkin. It also makes one wonder how he landed Kirilenko, but that's a completely separate issue.
