An ice hockey team from Russia took a rather unconventional approach to announce an injury to its star player by posting a photograph of her lying naked on the treatment table. HC Spartak Moscow star Yulia Ushakova showed off her bandaged ankle after stripping down to the bare minimum in the controversial photo. The racy picture garnered over 4,000 retweets after the club posted the same on their official Twitter account.

The gorgeous blonde decided to post the saucy image with her fawning Instagram followers on Monday despite knowing the risks of a possible backlash. “Trauma to the lower body of our leading (player) Julia Ushakova,” Spartak Moscow’s tweet read. “(The team) placed the attacker on the list of traumatized.”


The former bodybuilder went on to caption her Instagram post: “I twisted my ankle, two broken nails. My wrist will be corrected, and when I go for the manicure, the problem will be solved. I started the week badly. I will solve the ‘women’s problems’ in terms of the degree of significance; first I’ll remove the wrinkles, then to the manicure. And the ankle itself will pass. Let’s see how cosmetics works @celltense_russia. To all, a cool and positive start to the week!”

On Thursday, Ushakova confirmed she would be fit to play the next game and that she had completely recovered from her injuries, The Sun reports. The star player further added: “The ankle has recovered well, everything in order. Start working with the group and prepare the next matches at home.”


However, not everyone was happy. Barca Women, an unofficial football account, wrote: “This is how Spartak Moscow announced an ankle injury to the attacker, Julia Ushakova, clearly not impressed." Another user wrote: “This is so wrong (considering the current challenges), and I mainly blame her.”

Since the photo went viral, the 28-year-old blonde beauty shared several images and videos of herself working hard at the gym with her followers.


She even addressed concerns over her use of a naked image in another post, which showed her working up a sweat while doing hamstring curls.

It read: “In my direct messages for some reason, there are a hundred messages like, ‘I’m so sad for your injury’ and most of them are from Turkey. I do not know if this due to that Spartak officially declared me ‘injured’ or maybe a half-naked photo caused such excitement, but a fact is a fact.”

HC Spartak is slated to play their next game on October 2 against SKA.
