Haifa Olympiad (Women) (1976)

The 22nd Chess Olympiad took place between October 26 and November 10, 1976, in Haifa, Israel. For the first time, the event comprised both an open and a women's tournament.

International politics affected the event, as a large number of FIDE member nations withdrew in protest against the Olympiad being held in Israel.(1)

In the women's section, Israel (Alla Kushnir, Luba Danielovna Kristol, Olga Podrazhanskaya, Lea Nudelman) took the gold; England, the silver; Spain, the bronze.
