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, in 2016 I repeated this success by winning the Women's Russian Superfinal in Novosibirsk. 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, 2012 and in 2014 and became 4-times winner of the European Team Championship (2007, 2009, 2011 and in 2015). I also have three silver medals from the Women's World Rapid Championships of 2012, 2014 and 2016. More about me you can find on my blog www.chessqueen.com
