Malaysians in the August FIDE Rating List and going to the World Chess Olympiad
According to the most recent (August 2018) FIDE Rating List, Malaysia is ranked 82nd in the world, pretty much where we normally are even if it is again our No. 1 Yeoh Li Tian's rating that has dragged us up a few places.
The biggest change really is Lye Lik Zang moving past 2300 and in fact is at 2345.
Lik Zang at No. 3 will be the highest rated player in the Malaysian team for the coming World Chess Olympiad in Batumi, Georgia and he is joined by No. 9 Zaidan Zulkipli 2203, No. 12 Lim Zhou Ren,
2166, current National Champion and No. 20 Fong Yit San 2108, and No. 102 Mukhriez Shah Mahmood Shah.
