Irina Shayk has Sochi spirit and the Olympic gloves-handbra pose to prove it (photo)

Irina Shayk is Russian, if case you didn’t know — born Jan. 6, 1986 in Yemanzhelinsk – and for her contribution to embolden Russia’s team spirit heading into the country’s hosting of the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, the gorgeous swimsuit model took to her Instagram page to post a photo of herself seductively demonstrating her aforementioned support.

Wearing a hat emblazoned with “RUSSIA” with large block capital letters. But what will likely definitely attract all the attention are the conveniently (or inconveniently, depending on one’s perspective) placed gloves bearing Sochi Games Winter Olympics logo.

Peeking up and snuggled in underneath the glove-handbra is one of the Sochi Olympics mascots, Leopard.

Quite the compelling photograph, to be sure. To celebrate Shayk’s quest for instilling confidence and unity in her fellow Russians, just a few more snapshots culled from the supermodel’s Instagram account.

Go Russia! Or something.
