2012 FIDE Women's Grand Prix - Jermuk

Despite the Chinese players all losing their final round games, Hou Yifan hung on to take the clear win with 7/11.  Here are the final round results - notice who knocked off the Chinese players:

Personal favorites Lahno and Koneru ended up in 3rd and 4th, respectively -- a very good event for Lahno and maybe not so good for Koneru, but she fought back into the top 4 and I give her credit for that. 

There are photographs and interviews galore at the official website, round-by round results and games. 

You can see from the FIDE Women's Grand Prix standings (not including today's results) - and Hou's winning 4 outright - she's the cream of the crop and today's victory cements her position at the top:
