Maria Sharapova has lived many highlights in her career, but carrying the Olympic torch into Fisht Stadium for the Sochi Winter Olympic Games must be up there with the very best. Maria looked absolutely elated as she ran with the torch and posted a photo on Twitter saying she couldn't believe it.
That was the best jog of my life! Running will never feel the same. #OpeningCeremony— Maria Sharapova (@MariaSharapova) February 7, 2014
Maria has been doing lots of sponsorship commitments in Sochi, but it was when she translated a Sochi Tennis Court mural, (Maria spent some time as a child in Sochi), that she became emotional. Despite her American accent and home in Florida, there is no doubt Maria feels strongly about her homeland.
