Amidst the sad news that Russian model, Anna Loginova has been killed, we Americans are also suddenly privy to the amazing circumstances of her life. Loginova was not only a high-paid model, but an elite bodyguard.

That’s right! If is to be believed, it isn’t uncommon for beautiful women trained in martial arts to become bodyguards in Russia. They have an edge over their beefier male counterparts in that they can accompany their clients to dinners inconspicuously, are not obvious threats to potential attackers, etc. etc.

It’s a sad event that brings this overseas phenomena to light, but the details are fascinating to be sure.
