I am delighted to inform you that a team of five chess players from Victoria are selected to represent Australia at the upcoming World Youth U16 Chess Olympiad, which will be held in Poprad-Tatry, Slovakia, from 21-30 July 2016.

 All participating teams from each country must comprise of five Under-16 players, of whom at least one must be a female.  Despite being a relatively young team, the team clearly fulfils the requirements to represent Australia well.

The male team members are ranked #2, #4, #5 and #6 in Australia Under-16. The female team member is ranked #2 in Australia Under-16 Girls.

Below are the team representing Australia and are all from Victoria.

2. Kris Chan:                        Currently ranked #1 in Australia Under-14.

3. Vishal Bhat:                    Currently ranked #2 in Australia Under-14.

4. Luis Chan:                        Currently ranked #3 in Australia Under-14.

5. Licia Yao:                          Currently ranked #2 in Australia Under-14 Girls.
