Alexandra Kosteniuk wins Bronze Medal at Blindfold Mind Sport Games 2011

Hello everyone!
The 2011 Sport Accord Mind Sports Games are over and they were great! In the 3 events, I took Gold medal in the Rapid, 4th place in the Blitz, and Bronze in the Blindfold event. The only other player who also got 2 medals is Hou Yifan who got 2 Gold medals, in the blitz and in the blindfold, congratulations to her! The other ladies who got medals are Lahno and Dzagnidze (Silver & Bronze in the Rapid), Stefanova and Muzychuk A. (Silver and Bronze in the Blitz), and Cmilyte (Silver in the Blindfold). Thanks to Sport Accord for the kind words about me

they wrote on the official tournament web site

The Russian former world champion Alexandra Kosteniuk can be proud of her results also. She won the rapid competition and took the 4th and 3rd place in blitz and blindfold accordingly. And last but not least – she was selected as the Ambassador of this games among the other great players and officials of 5 mind sports. We can’t even imagine who can do this job better then her. She was brilliant – on the chess board and outside it.

Here is a photo of me and Hou Yifan, we both got 2 medals in China.
