Yesterday famous Russian skier, twice Olympic champion Yulia Chepalova celebrated her birthday. On this very day, Yulia got a wonderful, unusual present, an official website named www.tchepaliva.com. A complete name of the site is “The Queen of Skiing.”
And Yulia is a true Queen. Recently, the Federation of Russia’s sports journalists announced its traditional ten best athletes of the country. As a result of a special poll held for this purpose, Yulia Chepalova was mentioned among the best athletes.
So, now Yulia Chepalova’s fans can read the recent news and her complete biography on the official website. The site contains all records of Yulia’s sports triumphs and provides pictures from a virtual photo album. You can also chat with Chepalova’s fans and certainly send a letter to the famous skier right from the site.
Yulia Chepalova said in one of her interviews: “Each time I get to the start is solemn for me. If I feel some nervousness, I try to conceal it: it’s better to smile to rivals than show your nervousness.”
Probably, these very smiles and shining eyes help her to be better, stronger and quicker than the rivals.
