Please, sports.ru, tell us you haven't gone full-Rossi or embraced your inner Aaron Ward on us, because this news is just too awesome: Vladimir Konstantinov has begun to walk again?!

Great story and WOW. I am impressed with the man's drive to walk again and try to have a normal life once again. He obviously takes the long-road of rehabbing from his injuries as seriously as he did an opposing forward coming into the defensive zone.

Just wonderful. Simply wonderful.
