Ovi addresses engagement rumors

Alex Ovechkin has been tweeting pics of his Olympic experience in London. In one of the pictures, Ovi’s girlfriend, Maria Kirilenko, appears to be sporting a bauble on her left ring finger.

The resulting speculation over whether it was an engagement ring started immediately.

“No, not engaged,” Ovechkin explained to Dan Hellie in London. “Some fan put on Twitter, ‘Are you guys engaged?’ It’s not an engagement ring.”

Hellie followed up on whether there was a proposal coming.

“We’ll see how it goes,” he said.

We’ve also seen pics of Ovi on the courts at Wimbledon, tennis racket in hand. When asked what it’s like to play with Kirilenko, Ovi admitted that it can be embarrassing.

“She beat me pretty badly,” he said. “She gave me advantage 40 - nothing and she beat me 6-1.”

I say put her on the ice at Kettler and even the score.
