Shrook WafaWafa Shook, the young chess player from Egypt, who lost her first round match to one of the strongest players from China, answered the questions at the press-center.

Anastasya Karlovich: Welcome to the Press center of the Women’s World Chess Championship. We are having our new guest Shrook Wafa of Egypt, a chess player from the African Continent. So, my first question is: how did you qualify for the Women’s World Chess Championship?

Shrook Wafa: I was qualified to this championship by taking the first place in the African Women’s Continental Chess Championship 2013.

Anastasya Karlovich: Who were your rivals during that championship? And how many players participated in that Continental event?

Shrook Wafa: My strongest opponents were from my country, Algeria and South Africa. These are the strongest chess countries in Africa. As for the number of participants, I don’t remember exactly, I think about 20-25 players.
