Here it is! The "Optimum"
In November 2004 there was a "Style+sport Awards" for the most stylish Russian sportsmen
So it looks like Igor was awarded in some category
, though I can't find out in which one.
The other winners were Sergei Ovchnnikov, Dmitry Sychev, Dmitry Parfenov, Aleksandr Mostovoy, Andrei Kanchelskis (all football players), Elena Dementyeva
, Aleksei Petrov, Ilya Averbukh and Irina Lobacheva (all three figure skaters), Aleksandr Popov (an ex-swimmer. I love him!
), Elena Isinbaeva (athletics), Ilya Kovalchuk, Pavel Bure and Pavel Datsyuk (hockey) and some others. Nice company!
But this info is from other sites, cuz there isn't the article from THAT issue anywhere
