The Chess Queen who Beat 'em Both: Kosteniuk Videos

Posted by World Chess Championship 2013 News Blog Wednesday, August 7, 2013
The 12th Women's World Chess Champion, Grandmaster Alexandra Kosteniuk has the unique distinction of being the woman chess player to have beaten both the World No. 1 and men's World Chess Champion - Magnus Carlsen and Viswanathan Anand. Here are the two videos from Chess Queen™ Alexandra Kosteniuk's official YouTube channel. Interestingly, Women's World Chess Champion Alexandra Kosteniuk beat Anand, Carlsen, Polgar, Aronian, Morozevich, Gashimov, Naiditsch and Grischuk at this tournament! She drew with Leko, Jakovenko and Karpov. 








In which other sport can the reigning women's world champion beat the overall (men's) world champion and the world No. 1? :)
