There was no need for tiebreaks at the top of the women’s event, with gold, silver and bronze all separated by half a point. Who could have predicted that those places would be occupied by the 8th, 9th and 17th seeds?
2nd placed Guliskhan Nakhbayeva had a lot to do with that as she beat 2nd seed Sarasadat Khademalsharieh and 4th seed Padmini Rout in Rounds 7 and 8 on the way to an unbeaten +5.
