Our mate Macauley just sent us some nice info on an interview he did with none other than WIM Arianne Caoili, winner of the Women's Oceania Zonal a couple of months back.
"It was fun. Yeah, it was a lot of fun. And I was very relaxed because it's not like it's the world to me to go to the Women's World Championships, but hey I won! So, I was happy."
When asked if she's improved her game by spending time with current love Lev Aronian, the Aussie gave a big, "Yeah".
Listen to Macauley's podcast over on Arianne and Aronian.
If there's a disappointment about this interview it is that Ari seems to have now abandoned her jazz ambitions. That's a real pity! I'm pretty sure that somewhere in my CD collection is one Arianne Caoili belting out a few classics!
