1997 Eurovision Chess Documentary Kosteniuk To Become a Queen

Hello everyone!

I looked back at all the documentary videos I have in my collection, and for sure one of the best, if not THE best is the following one, made by Eurovision, in 1997, when I had just won the Girls Under-12 World Chess Championship. The documentary is called “To Become a Queen”.

As they say, “the rest is history…”.

    Alexandra! Your player is very hard to work. Luckily I found the same vid on youtube. Such a competitive spirit and what a heart breaker!!! Those poor poor Russian boys from your school all missed out. :).
