    19-year-old Olympian Vitalina Batsarashkina is a big-time Witcher fan, it seems. It's now come to light that she wore a few Witcher items during competition at the Rio Olympics--and looked completely badass doing it.
    Take a look at the images below, as shared by The Witcher developer CD Projekt Red. You'll see that she has the Witcher wolf logo on her eyepiece, while the Witcher medallion hangs from her pocket. She also has some imagery from American McGee's Alice on her glasses.

    Batsarashkina took home the silver medal in the women's 10 meter pistol shooting event this week in Rio (via Kotaku).
    "Congrats on the silver medal, Vitalina Batsarashkina!" CD Projekt Red wrote in a tweet today. "Thanks for representing The Witcher at Olympics in Rio 2016."
    As you can see, Batsarashkina looks somewhat like a cyborg. There is a reason for that, and if you want to know what it is, read this excellent Wired story.
    As for the Witcher gaming franchise, a Game of the Year/Complete Edition for The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt comes out on August 30. It includes the base game and all previously released DLC, including the major expansions Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine.
