Indians Win Youth Olympiad

The World Youth Olympiad is over and once again the Indians have finished on top. Both India and Russia actually amassed 28.5 points each, but the Indians held the superior tiebreak.

Importantly, placing third was none other than the boys from RP, so well done to those guys! Chessdom is reporting that GM Wesley So will walk away from the event with an extra 15 ELO points, thus bringing him closer to 2650. Bring on the Olympiad! Bring on the Aussies!

Team Australia, by the way, ended the tournament third from the bottom with 11.5 points overall.
