Anna Chakvetadze Named Sexiest Russian Politician

2. December 2011 by Masha 0 Comments

Born in Moscow, Anna Chakvetadze began playing tennis at the early age of eight. She reached her peak in 2007 when she competed in the quarterfinals of the Australian Open and the French Open, and made it to the semifinals of the U.S. Open. She was ranked fifth in the world and achieved eight titles.


However, after suffering some health problems, the 24-year-old decided to lay down her tennis racket and stand up for the Right Cause Party. She's one of three parliamentary candidates in the running for the pro-business party election this Sunday. Her platforms are women's rights and children's sports.


"I joined the Right Cause party because it's a young party. All of its members are young people, who have many fresh ideas. I believe I also can bring some fresh ideas into this project. I'd like to be involved in deciding the questions concerning the sports sphere in case we manage to enter the State Duma. I am especially interested in children's sports. I believe the state should support the children's sports activity, making it completely free of charge."


We'll have to wait and see if Anna receives enough votes to start her political career, but she has already become the favorite in one internet poll. When asked to choose the sexiest Russian woman in politics, users voted for Anna the most, followed by former gymnast Alina Kabaeva, and then Russian spy Anna Chapman.
