Kirsan Ilyumzhinov on a trip to Mongolia: What's left behind the scenes. Part two

I was very pleased to meet in Ulan Bator the FIDE master Tuvshintugsiin Battsetseg, a participant of the 33rd World Chess Olympiad held in the capital of Kalmykia Elista in 1998. She warmly recalls City-Chess, the Chess Palace, where the Olympics took place, and says hello to all her friends, chess players from Kalmykia.

Today Tuvshintugsiin Battsetseg is the General Director of the Department of Foreign Trade and Economic Cooperation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Mongolia, she oversees the Neighbouring Countries programme. Her whole family is chess players. Her husband, brother and sister are fond of the ancient game. They are FIDE chess masters. And her father was their family coach.

Battsetseg's son, Yessentemur Togustemur (Esөntөmөriyn Tөgstөmur), also achieved high results in chess; he is a FIDE chess master. Tuvshintugsiin Battsetseg's son is a multiple winner of international chess championships. We have met each other more than once at international chess tournaments in South Africa and the United Arab Emirates.

I wish the whole chess family good health and good luck! And I wish Togustemur to become the World Chess Champion!
