Belarusian chess players returned home

 ISF World School Championship Chess was held for the first time in history in Tsaghkadzor, Armenia on 18-25 September.  Schoolchildren (15-18 years old) could take part in the championship. At this international sports forum the Republic of Belarus was represented by 2 teams- men’s team (Arseni Kotau and Ivan Runets) and women’s team (Aryna Kuzich and Volha Kalasouskaya).

   

 According to the results of the championship, the youth team of the Republic of Belarus took the 5th place. The strongest men’s teams were the teams of Armenia and Ukraine. Our girls took the 6th place.

In addition, our athletes received a special prize "Fair Play", established by the International School Sport Federation.

As it was noted by the organizers of the championship, this award is relevant, as in recent years there was a serious problem called "cheating" in the chess world. As article 12.1 of the rules of the International Chess Federation (FIDE) states, “the players shall take no action that will bring the game of chess into disrepute”. For example, intentionally returning a pawn or piece taken earlier to the board can be punished by giving the opponent a temporary bonus and returning to the last correct position, but the rule of discrediting the game of chess in this case can lead to a more severe punishment of the offender, up to the award of defeat. 

Besides the competition, the participants had the opportunity to visit the country's capital city of Yerevan and spend a "Night of Nations", where each of the participating countries presented the national culture and traditions of their country.
