|Sep-29-08|| ||sneaky pete: No jokes about Napoleon Bonaparte here?|
|May-14-10|| ||Benzol: Isn't she married to Vladimir Feldman ?|
|May-14-10|| ||ozmikey: <Benzol> Yes.
Irina very nearly died in the Maccabiah Games bridge collapse in 1997 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maccab...). Her husband Vladimir (who I used to know quite well) was on the bridge as well when it collapsed, but got out of the water fairly quickly...I remember seeing footage on the news that night and recognising him among the chaos.
As far as I know they still run a business coaching chess in the eastern suburbs of Sydney.
|May-14-10|| ||Benzol: <ozmikey> That's incredible. Only one of the athletes died as a result of the actual collapse but the other deaths were due to exposure to pollutants in the waters of the river.|
I can remember seeing both Irina and Vladimir competing at the 2005 Oceania Zonal Tournament held here in Auckland.
|May-14-10|| ||myschkin: . . .
IM Irina Berezina-Feldman (born Juli 7th 1965) is an Australian chess player. Together with husband Vladimir Feldman (they moved from Ukraine to Down Under in '92) and her elder brother Victor Berezin she runs a chess school in Sydney.

[answer to benz'z quest., while oz has been posting already ^^]
|May-14-10|| ||Benzol: <myschkin> Thanks!
|May-14-10|| ||ozmikey: <Benzol> That whole episode was a scandal - I remember they showed a good documentary about it afterwards, showing how shonky sub-contracting deals had resulted in that bridge being built by unlicensed cowboys at a knockdown (if you'll pardon the pun) price, with the original contractors making a mint in the process. No surprise that it was a disaster waiting to happen. As for the pollution in the water, apparently that was par for the course in Israel at that time.|
<myschkin> Thanks for the update on Vlad and Irina's activities!
I remember when Vlad won the NSW Championship in 1994 (which I was playing in as well), and at the prizegiving Malcolm Tredinnick and I were talking about how our respective parents were, oddly enough, both shouting us the plane ticket over to Perth for the Australian Open that January as a 21st birthday present.
Vlad, this struggling migrant from the Ukraine, looked at us two affluent Oz kids talking about this easy largesse we were getting from our parents, and said, "Could one your parents please adopt me and buy me ticket to Moscow for Olympiad?!?"
|May-24-11|| ||soni156: Irina was/is my chess teacher. She is reeeaaaallllly good! I did chess competitions at the Hakoa Club Sydney Australia. And I've also had some lessons from Vladimir|
