After Russian snowboarder Alexey Sobolev put his cellphone number on his helmet during the slopestyle event on Saturday, he got so many naked photos from women around the world that his iPhone crashed.
“Yeaaaaah,” he reportedly said said while pointing to a “particularly nubile woman” to a reporter. “She is really good.”
The IOC required him to put duct tape on his phone number during his race but, even though he did not medal, “his number had circulated through enough avenues – social media, photographs and even a national TV station in Russia – that thousands of messages from around the world flooded in.”
The deluge overwhelmed and crashed his phone, and when it finally started to work again, it “restarted and focused on one particular girl in what can only be described as the tightest dress in human history.” He said she was from Russia.
“Russia,” he said. Some girls [from other countries] sent me photos. But Russian girls: The best!”
And he said he was looking forward to even calling some of them.
Sobolev also had images of Pussy Riot on his board, though he was aloof and said he was not sure that the likeness of the group on his board was of the band that has clashed repeatedly with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
