Anna Muzychuk targets quadruple gold

Anna Muzychuk scored an unbeaten 9/11 to add the ACP European Women’s Rapid Championship to the double gold she won at the Women’s World Rapid and Blitz Championship in Qatar late last year. There was a surprise collapse from Valentina Gunina, who started with 6.5/7 before losing the next three games, while Kateryna Lagno took silver and Aleksandra Goryachkina snatched bronze with an unlikely 111-move win in the final round.
