Alex Ovechkin shows off skates that he’ll wear for the Olympics
Alex Ovechkin will be carrying the hopes and dreams of a nation on Thursday when Russia face off against Slovakia in the Winter Olympic games in Sochi, Russia.
The star player for the Washington Capitals will be wearing a very Russian pair of skates. You see, they have the Russian flag on them. The Russian Cyrillic simply says ‘my skates’. Athough he hasn’t forgotten his Capital fans, the team logo can be seen on the blades.
