The Kazakhstan women's chess team has returned home

The Kazakhstan women's chess team, who won silver at the World Team Chess Championship in Poland, has returned home. In a warm reception at Astana International Airport, their homecoming was celebrated by family, fans, journalists, representatives from the Kazakhstan Chess Federation, and other sports officials.

"We are delighted to have represented Kazakhstan so well at such a high-level competition. It required extensive preparation, and during the championship, we gave it our all, maintained composure during games, supported each other mentally, and it all paid off. Special thanks to our coaches, parents, the federation, and everyone who rooted for us," shared the team's youngest member, 16-year-old Alua Nurmanova.

It's worth noting that their second-place finish is a historic achievement for the Kazakhstani team. The delegation at the tournament included Bibisara Asaubayeva, Meruert Kamalidenova, Xeniya Balabayeva, Alua Nurmanova, Asel Serikbay, and Amina Kairbekova, along with coaches Pavel Kotur and Alexander Moiseenko.
