2013 World Youth Chess Olympiad

The No 1 Australian team has got off to a good start in the 2013 World Youth Chess Olympiad. They have won their first three matches, with a 2.5-1.5 win over Georgia being the best result so far. The second Australian team is finding it a little bit harder, winning their first round match, before getting whacked 4-0 by the top seeded Russian team, and then losing to one of the many Chinese school teams (40 in total!).
The tournament is for teams of players Under 16 years of age (at the start of the year), and has attracted a mix of strong national teams and less strong local teams.You can follow the results for the event here, while the tournament home page carries live coverage of some of the matches.
