Hello everybody! My name is Alexandra Kosteniuk, I am the 12th women's world chess champion. I was born on April 23, 1984 in Perm, Russia. I started to play chess at the age of 5. During my chess career I have achieved many titles and won various prestigious chess events: at the age of 14 I became a woman grandmaster. In 2001, at the age of 17, I reached the final stage of the women's world chess championship and became the vice-champion of the world. In 2004 I became the European Champion among women and in 2005 I conquered the Women's Russian Championship. The peak achievement of my career was in 2008 when I won the women's world chess championship in Nalchik, getting the world crown and the 12th women's world champion title. I have been playing for the Russian National Team since 2002, together with my team I won the Chess Olympiad-2010 and 2012 and became 3-times winner of the European Team Championship (2007, 2009 and 2011).
