Here is a sweet chess news update via The Chess Drum. Chess has progressed in Jamaica under the patronage of local chess administration and players, led by QC Ian Wilkinson, President of Jamaican Chess Federation. Recently several Jamaicans were awarded titles. 

The latest chess title in Jamaica goes to their the youngest chess player 12-year old Rachel Miller. She has just earned her Women’s Candidate Master title.

The title was earned from her result at the 2012 Central American and Caribbean Youth Chess Championship held in Caguas, Puerto Rico in December 2012 where she scored 5/9 (7th position in under-12). Confirmation came this week from FIDE to the joy of her coach FM Warren Elliott. Miller, a student at Campion, has compiled a string of successes in her short career. Rachel has a sister Rianna Miller, who also competed in the under-10 section and finished 2nd in the Under-8 female category.
