On 7th May 2016, International Master Goh Wei Ming published a blog article regarding the selection of players for 2016 Chess Olympiad, where he also refused to play for the Singapore team.
SCF Executive Council has since contacted and met with IM Goh and exchanged views on SCF selection policies.
In IM Goh's latest blog post on 4th Jun 2016, he has retracted his previous comments and has now decided to play for the national team. SCF Executive Council is glad to learn that IM Goh has decided to move forward and appreciate the challenges faced by the current council during this transition period.
