Russia’s most famous bodyguard, 29 year-old former model Anna Loginova, has been in killed in a carjacking. The glamorous 29-year-old died from head injuries after clinging on to the door handle of her Porche Cayenne and being dragged along the street at high speed as the car screeched away.

Loginova ran an agency for female bodyguards, some trained by the ex-KGB, to give discreet protection to Moscow’s billionaires and their wives and mistresses…
“A normal man gets sick and tired of male bodyguards around him all the time,” she said.
Her most famous client was rumored to be Kosta Tszyu, the Russian-Australian welterweight boxing champ.

Pravda reports that, on Sunday night, Loginova “arrived on her prestigious car to Moscow’s Novomarinskaya Street to purchase a kitten from someone. The next moment a Russian-made car stopped near the silvery Porsche. A young dark-haired man stepped out of the car and ran towards Anna’s vehicle.”

The man pulled the door open, grabbed the woman and dragged her our of the car. Afterwards, he quickly got into her Porsche Cayenne and shut the door. Everything happened in an instant. However, the young woman did not intend to give up without a fight. She got up onto her feet and gripped the handle on the door of her car. The woman did not let it go even when the car tore away.

The hijacker dragged the Porsche owner several meters before she released her hands. The woman hit her head on the asphalt road and died of a serious cranial injury. It turned out later that it was not the first incident, when hijackers attempted to steal Anna Loginova’s car. In December of 2007, the model said in an interview with Maxim magazine that she had already been a victim of such street attacks.

“I stepped out of my car and closed the door when I suddenly saw a young man near me. He grabbed me by the arm in which I was holding the car keys. By reflex, I used a Jiu-Jitsu technique. I twisted his arm and hit him on the face with my elbow. The guy obviously was not expecting such a reaction. He fell down on the rear windshield, which gave me enough time to grab my gun. He immediately jumped into his Honda and drove away,” the model said in an interview.

The second time around, she was not so lucky 😦

Sigh.. so you know we would love to do anything for a good cause, but this is a tad little too risqué even for us brainwash gals 😦 Thankfully not everyone feels the same way, as witness this ringing endorsement from a motivated Swim Team member; (granted it does benefit the Swim Team..but still!~)

“..the rousing highlight of the winter: Most definitely stripping on the street to help raise money for the McGill Varsity Swim team. We were all standing on the street in their swimsuits freezing in the streets (temperature? -14degrees! Wow!) They were so stoked when we stripped off our clothes, (all except undies) and started collecting money. People on the street didn’t know what to think but they gave us money. Everyone was shivering but laughing.”
