The organisers of the 2016 Chess Olympiad have published the team lists for the Open and Women's Olympiad. Top seed in the Open is Russia, followed by the USA, China and Azebaijan. In the Women's Olympiad, China is the top seed, with Russia, Ukraine and Georgia filling the next 3 spots.
Australia has a fairly high seeding in the Open (46), while the Womens' Team is seeded 54th.
Both Magnus Carlsen and Sergey Karjakin are playing for their respective countries, although India is missing Anand, while the event will be missing the entire Armenian team. The Papua New Guinea team is seeded 148th, slightly ahead of a couple of traditional rivals (Fiji, Guam, Bermuda) but surprisingly only a few spots behind teams like Botswana, who are usually further up the table.
