Ready, Set… Checkmate! Youth Online Ghana Tournament
After all the preparations and registration, The Youth Online Ghana Chess Tournament took place today, 13th June 2020. This tournament was an initiative by two of our IBDP 1 Year 12 Eagles, Abrahim Toutoungi and Shivjyot Singh.
Chess is a passion that these two share, and they decided that as part of their chess goals, they would organize a chess tournament for other chess talents in the country, like themselves.
The initiative was well received and quite a number of young chess talents registered to take part in the competition, which was divided into two categories, U-18 and U-14. The tournament was organized on Lichess.org, and the top 3 winners of each category were given a certificate.
The competition started at 10:00 am and after hours of competing, Abrahim, Shiv, and Krish came out at the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd positions respectively for the U-18 category!
We are proud that our Risk-takers fulfilled one of their chess goals, and we encourage that they continue to always be inspired and empowered to transform for a better world!
