A bronze in the World championship and a `board' silver at the World Team championship made it Harika's year. Of course, her defeat in the World championship semis to Ukraine's Mariya Muzychuk via tiebreak games was tough to swallow. But the 24-year-old was not found wanting in either consistency or preparation. It was her second World championship bronze after winning it in 2012.
