Sergey Karjakin Married and convert to Russian citizenship !

Sergey Karjakin held the record as the world youngest Grandmaster. He achieved that title in 2002 when he was 12 years and seven months. He is now no. 20th player in the world with 2717 FIDE rating.

Why i decide to write about this Ukraine boy is because he recently ( 25th July) convert to Russian and that's not all...he recently "convert to men" also. A day before he adopted Russian citizenship, he married with a lovely chess player - WGM Kateryna Dolzhikova. For the record - Kateryna 20, is a year older then Karjakin.
