World Youth Championship 2012

The 2012 World Youth Championship is about to start in Maribor, Slovenia. Australia has a small squad of players, competing in the various age groups. Yi Liu is in the Under 16 event, while Ari Dale did very well to travel from the Melbourne Cup Weekender to Slovenia in the space of a couple of days. Zachary Lo is in the Under 14 event, alongside Ari, while the Willathgamuwa brothers are both in the Under 10's. Sophie Davis is the only female representative, and she is in the Under 8 girls.
There are live games from the tournaments, although it looks like the top 10 boards from each. Based on the difference in time zones, the rounds seem to start at the slightly awkward time of 1am Canberra time.
