A Russian woman tennis player, figure skater, or gymnast is no surprise, but golfer? Meet Maria Verchenova.


Considered the “Maria Sharapova of golf,” Maria Verchenova is the first Russian woman to play on the Ladies European Tour. The 24-year-old golfer originally dreamed of being a famous ballerina, but all that changed when she played her first game at a golf club in the Czech Republic. Thanks to the help of coach Karl Scopovy, Maria won the Russian amateur championship in 2004 and 2006, as well as the amateur championships of Austria, Latvia, and Slovenia. She joined the Ladies European Tour in 2007 and is a rising star in the competitive world of women’s golf.
