A 21-year old volleyball star named Alisa Manyonok has flooded Western media headlines, calling her the most gorgeous volleyball player in the world. At first glance, Alisa can be mistaken for an actress or a model, but she’s actually an athlete.
Alisa’s family loves sports as well. Her mom used to be a member of a basketball team while her dad is a two-time European swimming champion and a member of the Junior National Team of Russia.
She started her sports career in the Russian city of Vladivostok, playing for a local team, but after winning a beauty pageant she decided to dedicate more time to modeling. Since then she has scooped up the top prize in numerous contests. Alisa bagged the Miss Russia Body title, then won the 2013 Miss Primorye Beauty Contest. Alisa also represented Russia in the Supermodel International in New Delhi, India and won first place in 2016.
Alisa now decided to leave the world of sports and pursue her career in modeling. The 21-year-old is now a top model, with her height of 5’11, and a body shape that developed over years of playing the game helped her specialize in lingerie, swimwear, and fashion.
