At the recently concluded World Youth U-16 Chess Olympiad, our young Lions and Lioness ended in 27th position from a starting rank of 33 out of 57 participating teams. With an average rating of 1999, the team fought bravely against tough opponents and ended up with four wins and a draw out of nine matches. The team had notable victories which included the 3.5-0.5 win over the host country's top team (Slovakia 1 with an average rating of 2247) in the 8th round, as well as the 3-1 victory over Denmark (average rating 2231) who eventually ended up in 10th position.
Also bringing pride to the nation is the sparkling performance of Lee Jun Wei who won ALL seven games he played with an incredible performance rating of 2817, receiving the Gold medal for Board 4.
We congratulate the team on their fine performance.
Board 4 - Gold, Lee Jun Wei
