Anand, Gelfand Both Get Home to Grand Welcome
In the very frenzied, attacking, and spectacular rapid chess being played at the Batumi Women's World Rapid, we did not miss keeping track of where World Chess Champion India's Viswanathan Anand and his Challenger Israel's Boris Gelfand were!
As expected, there are hundreds of reports on the Internet as the two very talented chess players were received in their respective countries to a grand welcome.
World chess champion Viswanathan Anand was greeted by fans at the Chennai airport on Saturday as he reached home after winning his fifth world chess championship title. Officials from the Indian Chess Federation and Anand's family members were also there to greet him. Anand's press conferences have already become a big source of discussion in the Indian media.
