NCFU Student – Chess Champion
Uliana Tokmakova (student, NCFU) won a classical chess contest among men.
Uliana applied to join the contest not for fun. The thing is that a contest like that is not held for women in the region, and she finally proved to be the only Lady among renowned men chess players.
– It was our city contest and I could try my hand playing with outstanding players, and I did really well here. Chess is a great way to develop your thinking and see things under different angles, – Uliana noted.
Now, Uliana is the winner in the Women Prize category.
– I’ve been playing since I was 5. It was my Mum who introduced me into this chess world, never even suspecting it would become my major activity for the nearest years, – the winner was quoted as saying.
Congrats, Uliana! And many more wins to you!
