Annals of Russian Sports Humiliation

Irina Krushes Russia

Irina Krushes Russia

What’s more humiliating for Russia than to lose to America in a sports competition?

How about losing to America in chess, which some might say is Russia’s national sport?

Could anything be worse than that?

Surprisingly, yes. Getting blown out by America 3-1.

Worse still?

What if the American team included Irina Krush, a former Ukrainian, and Anna Zatonskih, another Ukrainian.

Ouch.  It doesn’t get much more brutal than that.
