World Under 16 Olympiad

The World Under 16 Chess Olympiad is up and running in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Among the 35 teams is an Australian team, headed by Michael Kethro. They are seeded 15th, al;though I suspect some on the unrated teams might be quite strong. At the top end there are a number of strong players (1 GM and 7 IM's) but there are a number of not so strong teams as well.
The Australian team is off to a good start with 5/8, including a 3-1 win over Russia 2. Next up they play Kyrguzstan, who are just seeded below them.
If you wish to follow the event, the tournament home page might be the best bet, although results can also be found at
