World U-16 Youth Olympiad 2015

I just realised that the World Youth U-16 Olympiad starts today and found the official website

Seems that Malaysia is unrepresented... not a big surprise with so many already having just finished playing at the Asian Youth Championships from 3-11 August and the Malaysian Chess Festival from 18-28 September 2015 coming up.

As always MCF has no consistent policy on this event, no doubt Gregory did not manage to find a way to exploit the usual groups of suspects to make it worth his while this time around.

Because of a prior obligation in Korea (where I am writing this), I had to decline a rather attractive offer to coach at this event held in Ulaanbaator, Mongolia from 19-29 August but there is at least one Malaysian who will be there as an arbiter.
