Women competition was canceled few years ago due to the economical issues. We didn’t have to wait long for the results. None of ladies from Europe was able to equally compete in prstigious, international tournaments beside Jasmin Ouschan and those who immigrated to USA. It is time now to fix the damages caused by the wrong decision.
