Boston Bruins defenseman Zdeno Chara is a very large man. At 6-foot-9, the B’s captain dwarfs nearly everyone in a league that is full of other very large men.
And if the tallest player in NHL history looks huge standing next to, say, 6-foot-4 Milan Lucic, he looks positively gargantuan standing next to one of Sochi’s shortest Olympians.
That would be 4-foot-10 Canadian figure skater Kirsten Moore-Towers, who snapped this excellent photo when she crossed paths with Chara, Slovakia’s hockey captain and flag bearer, at the Olympic complex.
Check it out below.
Ran into Zdeno Chara today. Couldn't resist taking a picture :) http://t.co/sYNOIbrWLn—
