First Photo of Women Winners of the Olympiad

Click to enlarge, photo ©
Hi everybody!

I just want to share one photo taken just a few moments ago after the prize giving ceremony of the Chess Olympiads here in Khanty-Mansiysk.

It's our Russian-1 Women's team, who won all 11 matches of the event (that's a record, no other team has ever won all their matches!).

See the full results here.

In order of the boards:

1. Tatiana Kosintseva, GM, ELO 2573
2. Nadezhda Kosintseva, IM, ELO 2565
3. Alexandra Kosteniuk, GM, ELO 2524
4. Alisa Galliamova, IM, ELO 2482
5. Valentina Gunina, WGM, ELO 2465

In addition to the Gold Team medals, both sisters Tatiana and Nadezhda Kosintseva got Gold medals on their boards, an extra bravo to them, too!

We'll have many photos and even videos of the prize ceremony tomorrow.
