Just saw this good news on Twitter.
If Chess makes it to Olympics, India will have a good chance of winning at least a Bronze.
For many years it has been debated if Chess is a Game or a Sport…and if Olympics is only about Sports involving some physical activity.
Once Chess is accepted, Bridge and other card/board games (Go, Poker etc) will also knock on the doors. That’s why Chess was not yet part of Olympics.
Anyways, this development is a step in right direction because Chess fulfills most of the criteria – number of nations playing it, format (Blitz, Rapid would be suitable for Olympics) and also organization//administrators network.
Hope our own Kabaddi and T20 cricket also feature in Olympics soon.
