Russian women are team world champion
02 Oct 2021
The “CFR Team” won the Women’s Team World Championship held in Sitges under a new format, mixing rapid chess and k.o. mode in the absence of China, whose team wasn’t allowed to travel. CFR stands for Chess Federation of Russia. During the WADA ban until 16 December 2022 no athlete or team can straightforwardly represent Russia in a world championship.
