On the last few days, a girl from Kazakhstan has won the Internet: Sabina Altynbekova. Sabina is an 18 years old graceful volleyball player from the Kazakh Under-19 volleyball team. She started becoming famous on the web at the Asian under-19 Volleyball Championship, where she first got the attention of the local media with her pale skin and long legs. So here we are to write about this lovely athlete.
Sabina Altynbekova is 5’12” (1,85m) and 130 lbs (59kg). She was born in November, 1996, on Almaty, Kazakhstan. When this cute Asian volleyball player is in court, all the attention is instantly draw to her. Sabina’s coach, Nurlan Sadikov, has told the local news that ‘It is impossible to work like this. The crowd behaves like there is only one player at the championship’. Even Sabina Altynbekova recognizes it is going too far and although she thanks all the support and messages she is receiving, she asks for people to stop creating social media pages and profiles about her. The cute Kazakhstan girl has even being feature in anime drawings and illustrations (you can see one of them in the gallery at the end of the post).
Sabina never though she would get so much attention. She has now over 190 thousand followers on her Instagram account and 5 thousand alone on Twitter. It all started with fans from China, Japan, Vietnam, Taiwan, , South Korea, Malaysia and the Philippines, but fast enough she began to attract fans from all over the world. Sabina Altynbekova is getting tons of daily comments on her Instagram pics (and even marriage proposals!).
We hope she can really develop her talent and doesn’t get overwhelmed by the sudden fame, so we can see a lot more of her on the next years.
