Volleyball Player's Team and Coach Claim She's Too Attractive, Distracts Fans

Tyler Brooke@TylerDBrookeSenior Analyst IIJuly 26, 2014

Kazakhstan volleyball player Sabina Altynbekova has developed quite a following in her home country, but the rest of her team isn't too happy.

The player's teammates and coach complained that Altynbekova was simply too attractive and was distracting fans. Kazakhstan's coach Nurlan Sadikov went as far to say that some of the fans don't even watch the games and instead just stare at Sabina.

"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."
