The woman too beautiful for for sport

SABINA Altynbekova, dubbed the Anna Kournikova of volleyball, has caused controversy in her homeland because of her gorgeous looks.

The Kazakhstan beauty has become an internet sensation after travelling with her team to Taiwan for the 2014 Asian Junior Women’s Volleyball Championship.

The 17-year-old attracted enormous attention because of her good looks, and Kazakhstan coach Nurlan Sadikov was furious, saying it was a distraction to the team.

“It is impossible to work like this,” Sadikov told Tengrin News. “The crowd behaves like there is only one player at the championship.”

Taiwanese fans arrived an hour early to games holding Kazakhstan flags and following her every move.

The attention is even becoming too much for Altynbekova herself, who appealed for fans to stop setting up social media pages focused on her.

“I was flattered at first but it’s all getting a little bit much,” Altynbekova said. “I want to concentrate on playing volleyball and to be famous for that, not anything else.”

Altynbekova’s mother Nuripa Amrievna said she had wanted her daughter to attend law school rather than play sport, adding the teenager had been asked to model.

“But she will not go there (become a model) — we as parents are against (it),” Amrievna said.

One YouTube clip uploaded a week ago of Altynbekova has already attracted almost 800,000 views.
