Teenage Volleyball Player Sabina Altynbekova slammed for being too attractive
Sabina Altynbekova,a 18-year-old player on the Kazakhstan women’s national volleyball team,is the latest athlete to become “Internet famous” because of her perfect body and gorgeous features.
While playing at the 2014 Asian Junior Women’s Volleyball Championship,Sabina has garnered all the attention of the audiences and none of them cares whether she can actually play volleyball.YouTube videos that show her warming up, high-fiving her teammates or just standing around have received tens of thousands and even hundreds of thousands of views.
But lately,the 6-foot-tall player is coming under fire just because of the great amount of attention.
First of all,her teammates are not too happy about this,and media in her homeland have slammed the obsession with her recently.
“Fans just stare at her and they are not following the championship any more,” reported Vesti, a daily newspaper in Kazakhstan.
Even her own coach described the team as “hampered” by Altynbekova.Kazakhstan's coach Nurlan Sadikova said Sabina was too attractive and was distracting fans,as some of the fans just stare at Sabina instead of watch the games.
"It is impossible to work like this," he said. "The crowd behaves like there is only one player at the championship."
Sabina also admitted that things are getting a little out of hand.
"I was flattered at first but it's all getting a little bit much," she said. "I want to concentrate on playing volleyball and to be famous for that, not anything else."
