Our 12 compatriots  also competed in the competition  which  involved wunderkinds from  more than 70 countries  in 5 groups among  10,12,14 ,16 and18 year old boys and girls. Our compatriot Ulvi Bajarani achieved the highest result in comparison with our other chess players in the struggle of 10 year old competitors.

U.Bajarani scored 8.5 points in the 12 games. Our chess player who was half point behind Indian Sahaj Grover and Russian Ivan Bukavshin won bronze medal of the world championship.
