  cro777: World Youth Chess Championship 2014, Durban South Africa.

The barely 14-year-old WFM Laura Unuk won the Under-16 Chess World Championship title in South Africa. Today, in the last round, she won the world title beating her Iranian opponent, Derakhsani Dorsa.

She lives in Ljubljana, Slovenia and plays for the Komenda chess club. This year she started collecting gold medals two months ago, when together with Ivana Hreščak, she also won the Under-18 European team chess championship title.

  alexmagnus: <The barely 14-year-old WFM Laura Unuk>

According to the bio here she is born 1999, so she cannot be <barely> 14 years old. 14 or 15, in any case closer to 15.

  cro777: <alexmagnus> <In any case closer to 15>

That is correct. To be more precise, she was born on 09 November 1999.
