Chess Queen Kosteniuk is Ambassador of the 2011 SportAccord World Mind Games

Hello everyone!

I just arrived in Beijing, China, and am very happy to participate in the 2011 SportAccord World Mind Games, which is like the Olympics but for intellectual Games. As you may know, I was honored to win the first Gold medal of the event in 2008 (news, Chinese news, final against Stefanova [game 1, game 2, game 3]). This year, I was elected the Ambassador of this prestigious event, and I feel very honored about that appointment. I’m playing the tournaments, and you can follow the results at the official site (home page, live games, YouTube). Wish me good luck! 🙂
