Individual Medal at the Baku Olympiad

With a stellar performance turning back the years, 65 year old Eugene Torre won Bronze Medal on Board Three at the 42nd Chess Olympiad held in Baku, Azerbaijan 2016.

Torre’s unbeaten 10/11 score result was the absolute best in Baku.

Torre was doubly happy because the Gold Medal was captured by Filipino Wesley So who is now representing the USA.

The medals were given based on the player’s rating performance. FIDE used to award medal for percentage performance. But sadly, not anymore.
