Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-10-07  pawnofdoom: No kibitzing yet? Khaled won the Arab girls under-20 championship a while back when she was 11! She became the worlds youngest WIM and already has a few WGM norms, if I remember correctly.
Jul-28-08  alshatranji: Born in 1994. She also won the African champinship in 2007 (at 13). She is a FIDE Woman Grand Master (WGM) at 14. Considering her age, she may have a bright future ahead of her.

"Egypt’s youngest chess champion"

(by Tracy Lowe, Egypt Today, 2004)

Champion of Egypt 2010 (with 9/9):, congratulations!

Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: At least one player who plays the national championships despite being totally dominant within her nation.
Premium Chessgames Member
  alexmagnus: It's interesting, she is the best female player in <Africa> but only #108 among all players in <Egypt>. Why is African women's chess so undeveloped compared even to their own (far from developed) men's chess?
Mar-11-10  Shams: <alexmagnus><Why is African women's chess so undeveloped compared even to their own (far from developed) men's chess?>

Are many African women encouraged to compete intellectually with men in other facets of life?

In much of Africa, survival is a challenge; with an average per capita income of roughly two dollars a day, Egypt is no exception. This condition does not lend itself to the widespread development of recreational activities.

I blame poverty, which is the single most destructive form of violence ever unleashed. And note that I do not accept the notion that "they brought it on themselves"; there are historical reasons for this, and they are not the result of "choice."

When, or if, the forces that constrain are finally overcome, I predict that Africa will take its place as a formidable contender in chess as in other spheres. Meanwhile, let us applaud and appreciate the astounding ability of people under pressure to rise in the face of adversity.

  Tabanus: Mona Khaled or Khaled Mona?
Premium Chessgames Member
  perfidious: <Tabanus>, I am not clear on this, as Khaled is a very commonly bestowed masculine forename in Egypt.
Nov-19-18  Retireborn: I'd guess it's Mona Khaled. In the UK we have a Mona of our own:-

Wiki suggests that "Muna" would be a more precise transliteration of the Arabic name.

Premium Chessgames Member
  Tabanus: <perf, Retireborn> Thanks. Khaled is also a surname.

This is a female player, and Mona is a common female forename in Norway. I think Mona must be the forename, but FIDE has "Mona, Khaled".
