A teen volleyball player from Kazakhstan is coming under fire, but it’s not because of her skills. It’s because of her looks.
Critics say Sabina Altynbekova, 18, is so hawt that it’s a distraction to the sport. Even the athlete’s own coach says his team is increasingly about one player, at least as far as the fans are concerned. Sabina’s account on The Gram hit 250,000 followers just last week.

“It is impossible to work like this,” Nurlan Sadikov, coach of the nation’s under-19 team, told Tengrin News in a quote translated by the Daily Mail. “The crowd behaves like there is only one player at the championship.”
Hmmm, whatever happened to Janet Wanja?
