Alexander Nevsky is a bodybuilder, screenwriter, producer, writer and actor. You know, he has become the first successful Russian writer, producer and actor in Hollywood (thanks to his roles in Moscow Heat and Treasure Raiders).
Sasha Kuritsyn (his real name) was born on July 17, 1971 in Moscow. The boy began to do sports in 1986. He was an amateur boxer from 1986 to 1992, practiced different martial arts and attended master-classes by Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal. Later Alexander was engaged in bodybuilding and became medalist in Moscow. By the way, he was awarded by the Association of natural bodybuilding for the fight against steroids and was a judge at the World Cup Natural Olympia (1999).
However, Nevsky’s statements were challenged by the functionaries of the Federation of Bodybuilding and leading Russian bodybuilders (including Sergey Shelestov), who stated that they had never heard of the athlete with the same name.
In 1994 Nevsky graduated from the State Academy of Management in Moscow.
At the age of 25 Alexander changed his surname to Nevsky.
