Our Academy Pride Vantika Agrawal scored her final WGM-norm and WGM title at Vezerkepzo GM August 2021. She scored 4.5/9, performed at 2408 to become India's latest Woman Grandmaster. She scored two of her WGM-norms and crossed 2300 by July 2019. The Covid-19 pandemic delayed her an opportunity to play over-the-board tournaments. However, that did not stop her from preparing and increasing her strength. She started turning things in her favor after winning Gold for the Indian team at FIDE Online Olympiad 2020. Her hard work is paying off as she won one accolade after the other, the latest being her winning the coveted WGM title.
Scores her final WGM-Norm in her comeback tournament
Vantika Agrawal had scored two WGM-norms and already fulfilled the 2300 rating criteria. However, she had not played any over-the-board tournament since January 2020. She won the Gold medal for the Indian team in the first ever FIDE Online Olympiad last year, then she won FIDE Binance Business Schools Super Cup for her college SRCC in July 2021. Within a few days after winning for her college team, she won the AICF National Senior Women's Online championship and secured second position in the AICF National Junior Girls Online 2021. She has been working hard, and her consistent performance shows that.
