XIVth World Chess Champion Vladimir Kramnik congratulated the participants of the Women's World Chess Championship Final:

I congratulate the Ukrainian grandmaster Mariya Muzychuk on conquering the queen of chess title. I myself won the World Cup in 2013 and know firsthand how hard it is to prevail in long knock-out competitions. Mariya cruised through this tough and gruelling routine with splendour and demonstrated her power of will, stress tolerance and resourcefulness. This victory can by all means be called a true sports feat.  

I am also fascinated by the performance of the Russian player Natalia Pogonina. She established a peculiar record: winning "on demand" three second games of three successive matches. 

I wish further creative achievements to both chess players!

Vladimir Kramnik
