Chennai: Indian grandmaster Harika Dronavalli achieved the ultimate dream on Tuesday following the conclusion of the 44th Chess Olympiad as she bagged a medal while being nine months pregnant. The 31-year-old took to social media on August 10 to express her delight in doing so. She said it’s more emotional because she made it at nine months of pregnancy.
