One of the brightest players of the new basketball generation in Russia, Vadeeva has been a sensation on every level while playing at various youth tournaments. This was recognised by her MVP crowning at the U16 European Championship Women last year. She has conquered all the titles and individual awards possible during her early career and is labelled as a ‘wunderkid' who has also earned herself the reputation of the "new Maria Stepanova". So far at least, she is trying and succeeding in matching it perfectly. Last year she made a fantastic debut in the Russian Premier League and later on, charmed Coach Myshkin with her talents during the training camp for the senior national team. Gifted and a skillful pure center, she could not only be the real diamond in the Russian roster, but the sensation of the whole tournament if given the opportunity - especially after showing she can perform in EuroCup Women.
