Andrea is off to invade Russia!

Andrea Bosch receiving Western Cape Provincial Colours
In a previous article, I posted that the MSSA stated that they would be sending a player to participate in the
2015 edition of the Russian and Brazilian World Championships for the Brazilian and Russian variations of Draughts to be held in St Petersburg, Russia from 2 to 11 October 2015.

I too noted that the championship carries prize money of 3,600,000.00 roubles (approximately US$64,000.00).

Such article can be found here:

Well, the MSSA Management Board (ManCom) has sat and has decided on its candidate for such World Championships.

The candidate is, wait for it, wait for it (drum-roll)

The candidate is none other than the vivacious Fairmont High Educator, Ms Andrea Bosch.

Andrea already has Senior Western Cape Provincial Colours having won both the eSports game of Tekken Tag Tournament II, as well as for Brazilian Draughts without losing a game at the 20th edition of the MWEB Western Cape Championships.

Andrea is too the first women that will officially represent South Africa in Draughts, and will be the first draughts player to represent South Africa in Russia.

Andrea is too the first person from the Western Cape to officially represent South Africa in draughts.

Mind Sports South Africa knows that she will do South Africa proud.
