Hello everyone,

Javakhishvili scored 9.5 points from 11 rounds without a loss and won the title ahead of Khurtsidze Nino (2456) and Khotenashvili Bela (2527) who took second and third places respectively. 

The second and third places were decided only in the last round though Lela won the title with a round to spare a full 1.5 points ahead of the rest of the field. (Official website)
