Selina Gasparin and Ilya Chernousov got married
Olympic silver medal winner Selina Gasparin and Ilya Chernousov got married in the groom’s hometown of Novosibirsk (RUS). “2014 is a lucky year for me. After I won silver medal in Sochi we have just got married. It’s like in a fairy tale. We have to postpone our honeymoon, we are now fully focused on summer training,” said the bride.
Both Selina and Ilya are going to keep their family names and will continue compete for their nations. The church wedding is going to take place at a later date in Switzerland.
The Swiss biathlete and Russia’s Cross-Country skier have been a couple for several years. Olympic Winter Games in Sochi were a career highlight for both of them. Gasparin won a silver medal in Biathlon and Chernousov conquered a bronze medal in 50 km Free.
