Grandmaster Alexandra Kosteniuk leads the Russian team at the European Team championships in Crete

PHOTOS OF EUROPEAN CHAMPIONS. Pufichek brings you a special gallery of smiling European champions, taken during the prize giving ceremony in Crete last night. We remind you that for the first time since the Soviet years, Russia has been able to regain both men and women’s titles simultaneously, it’s a great achievement for the men (Svidler, Morozevich, Grischuk, Alekseev and Jakovenko) and for the women (Kosteniuk, T. and N. Kosintseva, Kovalevskaya, Korbut). The Russian champions earned each a Gold team medal, and no less than 8 medals for top board results. Congratulations!
