The official list of qualified players is here: https://www.fide.com/news/1086

Pogonina is listed as first reserve based on rating, so she could have replaced Kosteniuk, but it looks like she also decided not to play.

  HeMateMe: it may mean that too many Russians are still not Covid vaccinated, some players with kids are worried about bringing the virus home.

  piltdown man: Couldn't they squeeze the name of the last player in? Her name is shorter than "Plus one more players". Which isn't grammatically correct.
Aug-03-21  siggemannen: Whole two games in the final match. I've seen thursday blitz tourneys for 20 bucks total prize money decided by more games than that.

  alexmagnus: Kosteniuk won without having played a single tiebreak.

It never happened among men (one tiebreak was the minimum, Anand in 2000 and Kamsky in 2007).
