A quick Google search told me the dates of the World Finals that year. It was then an easy matter of searching emails from her in that date range:
from:<her address> after:2012/5/23 before:2012/5/26
It took less than two minutes to find an email from 2 years ago with only limited knowledge of what it contained.
Pretty cool, huh?
