If the perfect score of the Iranian women’s team after three rounds was newsworthy, then perhaps the best way to angle the headline for round four is – Iranian women drop first half point! The Olympiad sensations, seeded 21st, defended their right to the top table with a resounding 3.5-0.5 win over slightly higher rated Slovakia. Only Slovakian top board IM Eva Repkova survived, and the magical Iranians continue to outpace the clear pre-tournament favorites, China.
