Vesna rip

FIDE regrets to announce that two-times Slovenian Chess Champion WIM Vesna Rozic (2260) lost her battle with cancer and has passed away.

One month ago Rozic' father wrote a letter requesting donations from the chess community for his daughter, who had been diagnosed metastatic peritoneal cancer.

Unfortunately the cancer was too advanced and 26 year-old Vesna Rozic passed away on August 23.

FIDE expresses its deepest condolences to Slovenian Chess Federation and members of Vesna’s family.
