It's probably everyone's dream to play for their country at their favourite sport. It doesn't matter whether it's cricket, soccer, tennis, netball or chess, the best thing must be knowing you're good enough to represent your country.
Every two years, chess has its own Olympics, a tournament that dates back to the founding of the World Chess Federation, FIDE, in 1924. This year, the tournament couldn't go ahead as planned because of Covid restrictions and world travel bans. So instead, FIDE put the tournament online, and it is being hosted by chess.com.
Kids Unlimited is very happy to be represented by our coach, Woman Grand Master Julia Ryjanova, and we wish Julia and the rest of the Australian team the very best of luck in their division. You can follow them online from 6:00pm on Friday 14th August
