Team India has turned out a stellar performance by sharing the Gold Medal at the first ever on-line Chess Olympiad in the revised format. This achievement on par with the formidable Russia made us very happy and every Indian proud. This performance is really meaningful because the team consisted of our Men, Women, Junior Boys & Junior Girls thus making it very unique. This result has made our performance at Tromso Olympiad in Norway in 2014 no flash in the pan, where our men team won a bronze medal for the first time in Chess History. I am now overwhelmed by this incredible performance at the Olympiad 2020 which put India on top of the chess world along with Russia and I congratulate each and every member of the team who made the country proud. All Members of the team will be suitably rewarded by the Federation.
