Kazakhstani Women Win Silver at World's Women's Team Championship

The Kazakhstani women's national chess team sensationally secured the second-place position at the World's Women's Team Championship held in the Polish city of Bydgoszcz. The Kazakhstani team consisted of Bibisara Asaubayeva, Meruert Kamalidenova, Xeniya Balabaeva, Alua Nurmanova, Asel Serikbay, and Amina Kairbekova, with coaches Pavel Kotsur and Alexander Moiseenko supporting them throughout the competition. 
The Kazakhstani women triumphantly reached the finals of the world championship, where they faced the Georgian national team but were narrowly defeated.

"We are proud of our women's team. Securing silver medals at the adult team world championship is a remarkable achievement, a first in Kazakhstani chess history. Undoubtedly, this is the result of the dedicated efforts of the chess players themselves, the coaching staff, and the entire team of our federation, as well as the support of thousands of loyal fans of the national team across the country. I am confident that our talented players have even greater heights and more phenomenal victories ahead," noted Timur Turlov, President of the Kazakhstan Chess Federation.

It is worth mentioning that the Kazakhstani chess players concluded the group stage of the championship without a single defeat and advanced to the playoffs from the top spot in their group. They then achieved resounding victories over the German national team in the quarterfinals and the French team in the semifinals. The Kazakhstan Chess Federation expresses gratitude to its general partner, Freedom Broker, for their comprehensive support of the athletes.
