Team Canada in World Youth U-16 Chess Olympiad 2015

Team Canada in World Youth U-16 Chess Olympiad 2015

Rachel and I participated in the World Youth U-16 Chess Olympiad back in August of this year.  It was an amazing experience representing Canada and being able to play against players from all over the world. The competition was undoubtedly fierce, and the team had many ups and downs during the tournament, but we managed to finish a solid 8th place at the end. We definitely had lots of fun both playing and exploring the wonderful country of Mongolia – we even had a trip to view the 130-feet-tall statue of Chingis Khan!
Lastly, I would like to thank Seneca Hill Chess Club for sponsoring us each with 100$. I hope more and more club players will grow into extraordinary ones and enjoy chess.
