A volleyball sensation form Kazakhstan Sabina Altynbekova has arrived to Hong Kong today to the excitement of her local fans, Tengrinews reports citing Vesti.kz.

Upon her arrival Sabina apologized for the delay. She explained that the flight was delayed. However, Sabina’s later arrival did not lessen the excitement of the fans. In turn, the dark-haired doe-eyed leggy kawai took selfies with everyone.

Earlier, the 18 y.o. athlete talked about her trip to Hong Kong. “I’m planning to visit Hong Kong to meet volleyball players and share experience with them. We will be training together. Also, there will be a meeting with local celebrities. And finally, my favourite part is that I will meet with my fans,” Sabina said.

The pretty volleyball from Kazakhstan who bears a truly stunning resemblance to an anime character was first caught in the spotlight of the local media and won the hearts of hundreds of thousands of anime fans in Asia and all over the world after she appeared at the nine-day Asian Under-19 Championships in Taiwanese Taipei. She became world famous in a matter of hours, completely outshined the event she was at and has retained her popularity since.
