Malawi performs decimally
Monday, 10 September 2012 23:33

The Malawi Team led by Zengani Mkandawire to the 40th Chess Olympiad that was held in Istanbul from 27th August to 10th September 2012 has worsened the ranking of Malawi up by 15 steps to 140. The team comprising of Chiletso Chipanga, Joseph Nyambalo, Richard Mbedza and Joseph Mwale from board1 to 4 in that order never showed any commitment to the purpose that they went there for. Neither did the South African based Khuphwathea on substitute rescue the team from miseries. On individual performance, Joseph Nyambalo was a candidate for the FM title all the way up to the 6th round as he had 4 points just needing two points with four games to play. but alas! he couldnot go beyond four and therefore got a candidate master title together with Richard who also finished with four points after eight games he played.#%# Having failed  to impress at the olympiad, they are captured here at Bole airport struggling to beat Zimbabwea International Master Robert Gwaze.#
