30 September 2010, Khanty-Mansiysk – Our Malaysian chess girls are avid photographers and appear to take pictures wherever they go. Here are more pictures from the sidelines of the 39th Chess Olympiad in Siberia, Russia.
Roslina is really utilising her opportunities there when she manages to get a rare pose with the world’s number one player, Magnus Carlsen of Norway! She also has one with the UAE team, Pakistan board 3 and with WIM Nafisa Muminova of Uzbekistan!
Looks like Roslina is not alone in her quest, Nur Nabila too has done the same. Please scroll down to see pictures of Nabila with Super GM Magnus Carlsen and GM Hou Yifan of China!! Add Super GM Topalov of Bulgaria to her list!
