Russian snowboarder Alexey Sobolev is either crazy or a genius for pulling off the stunt he did during the slopestyle qualification at the 2014 Winter Olympics. Funny thing is, it has nothing to do with what he did on the slopes per se. You see, Sobolev decided to put his actual phone number on his helmet for all of the world to see. Check out a picture of it below. 

Since that moment, Sobolev has received thousands of texts, including some naked pictures from female groupies fans. And it got so hectic for Sobolev's phone that it pretty much broke or something like that. "The battery didn't die. The thing just gave up," the Russian snowboarder told Yahoo. Eventually, Sobolev was able to get his iPhone to restart, so he shared a, um, interesting photo with a reporter. 

"He turned the brightness of the screen to full blast and focused on one particular girl in what can only be described as the tightest dress in human history.

"And where was she from?

"'Russia,' he said. 'Yesterday, some guys from USA and Canada sent (text messages). Some girls sent me photos. But Russian girls: The best!'"

Upon further review, we can confirm that this was a genius move.
