Sabina Altynbekova has been generating buzz on the Internet for her good looks -- but that has apparently proven to be a disadvantage to her on the volleyball court.

According to an article in Bleacher Report, the 18-year-old Kazakh athlete from Kazakhstan's national volleyball team has now come under fire for being, well, just too attractive.

The player's coach and teammates have complained that her good looks was distracting fans.

Kazakhstan's coach Nurlan Sadikov went as far to say that some of the fans don't even watch the game 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 has also admitted that it has gotten a little out of hand, and wants to concentrate on playing volleyball and be famous for that.
