Sean Leahy at Puck Daddy brings news that Washington’s Alex Ovechkin will be a torchbearer at the Sochi 2014 Olympics. This not-all-that-surprising news comes to us by way of a Russian Coke commercial, dutifully translated below.

Ovechkin seems primed to have a prominent role in the Sochi Olympics. I feel like we need to staff up the blog to get ready.

Igor’s translation of the video, along with a billion other Coke/Ovi/Olympic videos, are below.

Translation

[Ovi sits down next to the boy]

Ovi: Are you worried? Everything will be “super”!

[Banner: Vlad Novitsky: participates in charity performances for children. Earned the right to carry the Olympic torch.]

[Vlad carries the torch, then lights up Ovi's; Ovi looks nervous]

Vlad: Are you worried? Everything will be “super”!

[Banner: Alexander Ovechkin: supports clubs for children. Earned the right to carry the Olympic torch.]

Voice: Do you make the world around yourself better? Enter your name on CocaCola.ru to carry the Olympic torch!
