In a pre-Olympics event, Maria Sharapova was asked which team she would support in ice hockey – USA or Russia. Her answer? ”My home country for sure.” Maria is lending a hand, per se, in helping to inspire and motivate Team Russia by wearing their hockey jersey in a recent photo shoot. She also hit the court in it for an upcoming episode for the Maria Sharapova Social Channel. Just a sneak peek below:
Maria also told Russia’s Grazia Magazine (in Russian) she loves skiing and figuring skating. It’s clear by that interview and the following tweet that Maria is loving this Winter Olympics! Back to tennis soon, I’m sure.
