Over the weekend, Alex Ovechkin brought his sick handles and gold number 8 necklace to the basketball court for a good cause. The Russian machine participated in the Step Forward Foundation’s charity basketball game for the second year in a row to help raise money for kids with cerebral palsy. The game was held at Moscow’s Dynamo Palace of Sports.
Ovechkin captained the green team, which was named “Together We Are Brighter” and coached by two-time Olympic gold medalist and his mother, Tatyana Ovechkina.
This weekend, Washington Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin flew to France to enjoy the lovely beaches of St. Tropez. On what he described as his vacation, Ovechkin hung out with former KHL player (CSKA) Ruben Begunts and Brooklyn Nets small forward Andrei Kirilenko (Maria’s cousin).
And for the first time ever, I saw Ovechkin dive.
