Hong Kong Under-14 Team Held their own in Asian Team Championship
The Hong Kong Under-14 Team landed in the middle of the table, scoring 50% in their match points, in the inaugural Asian Under-14 Nationals Cup.
Iran won gold, China A Silver and Malaysia Bronze.
All the Hong Kong team members fought hard, learnt much from playing against many stronger players, and built up great team spirit in the process.
Hong Kong Chess Federation Limited, as the only official chess organisation body in Hong Kong, will provide opportunities for young players, who have proven themselves in HKCFL tournaments, to represent Hong Kong in FIDE-official events.
This experience will hopefully encourage these youngsters to compete in more high quality international tournaments, and aspiring them fight for Hong Kong in events such as the Chess Olympiad.
