Hi everyone,

Li Chao and Tan Zhongyi winners in ShenzhenLi Chao and Tan Zhongyi are the winners of the chess section at the 26th Summer Universiade in Shenzhen, China. Li Chao dominated the men’s section at the chess tournament held at the 26th Summer Universiade. With 8.5 out of 9 and a performance of 2993 he won the tournament 2 full points ahead of numbers 2 and 3, his countrymen Wang Hao and Wang Yue. The women’s section was much more exciting with three players finishing on 7 out of 9, but Tan Zhongyi had the better tie-break taking the gold medal ahead of Batkhuyag Munguntuul (silver) and Huang Qian (bronze). With 5 Chinese winning individual medals it was no surprise they also won the gold medal for teams outranking Ukraine and Georgia.
Shenzhen is located in the south of China at the border with Hong Kong and it’s one of the fastest growing cities in the world. At the moment it counts more than 14 million people.
