Nana Dzagnidze
Nana Dzagnidze is the European women's champion (2017), the women's blitz champion (2017), the winner of the World Chess Olympiads as a member of the Georgian women's national team (2008).

Nana was born on January 1, 1987, in Kutaisi, an important historic and economic center in Western Georgia. Since she was a child, Nana has demonstrated outstanding chess talents and soon made great progress in the Georgian and international arena. Many-time winner of the world youth championships. Grandmaster since 2008.

Since 2004, she has been playing for the Georgian national women's team. Dzagnidze is the winner of the 2008 World Chess Olympiad as a member of the Georgian national women's team. At the 2014 Olympiad, she won gold medal on the first board, leaving Hou Yifan behind. Many-time medalist of the European and world team championships as a member of the Georgian national women's team. Many-time winner of the European Cup as part of Nona team.

The success achieved by Dzagnidze in the individual series is equally considerable: the 2017 European women's champion, the 2017 World blitz women's champion. In the finals of the World Internet Blitz Championship (2015), she shared victory with Harika Dronavalli, but remained second on tie-breakers. Nana made it all the way to quarterfinals in the knockout world championships many times.

Nana Dzagnidze's peak rating reached 2573. The chess player has laid claim to winning the FIDE Women's Grand Prix tournaments many times, but she has never taken first place and made it all the way to the title match. The Georgian team leader has repeatedly beaten distinguished male players, the strongest of them being Maxime Vachier-Lagrave. She took part in the 2017 World Cup, losing 0.5-1.5 to Anish Giri.

"Dancing, walking, reading, playing with kids and… 4.5 hours of chess per day!" – this is Nana Dzagnidze's motto.

Nana Dzagnidze holds the honorable FIDE's Caissa award as the best women's chess player in 2017. The valuable prize, developed and made by the masters of Lobortas Classic Jewelry House, was officially handed over to Nana on December 31, 2018, during the King Salman World Rapid and Blitz Championships in Saint Petersburg.
