And you thought Anna Kournikova was a distraction. Sabina Altynbekova, a gamine 17-year-old volleyball player is so beautiful that she stops the game. Her Kazakh teammates are paralyzed by jealousy as fans can’t seem to see anyone but the tall stunningly beautiful Altynbekova on the court at the Asian Under-19 Championships, according to the Daily Mail. Media that would normally pay little attention to the tournament have been galvanized by the presence of Altynbekova. Reports are everywhere of this larger-than-the-game beauty. The Mail even quotes her coach as saying “it is imposssible to work like this,” referring to crowds so focused on the beauty queen that they ignore the games.
Social media sites have started to pop with images of the volleyballer, like the YouTube page called “Altynbekova Sabina The Most Beautiful Girl of Kazakhstan.”
