NM Choo Min Wang taking on 13 opponents, wish could named them, any chance Choo or QSS !!.
But Choo biggest achievement was the winning of three Gold Medals and three Silvers in the Asean Paralimpics at Manila, Korat and Kuala Lumpur. Choo was certified partially blind due to age and cronic eyeball problem that being certified as blindness and sifu gladly accepted Choo as an paralimpic athlete.
His first outing in Manila was a miss on gold, when he won two silvers in blind individual and team events.
In Korat, the cold weather was not too kind on him, when he was coughing and his cold played havoc for him to miss a checkmate on the Gold medalist to give him a Bronze individual medal and a silver team medal.
But in Kuala Lumpur 2009, Choo was ready to capture B2B3 Individual Gold, a Combined B1B2B3 Individual and Team Gold with with Mah Hassan and Shaharuddin Sidek.
It was a great achievement for chess in Malaysia to win the first men gold ever in chess either in able or paralimpic chess. MSN honoured him with an award but sifu would recommend him for the Malaysia Best Man Chess Atlete for the NM, 3 Golds, 3 Silvers and a Bronze medals.
Will Choo, who is a chess veteran, play in Bandung Asean Paragames 2011 ? Until and unless new young players appear on the scene and beat Choo, who is still unbeatable in paralimpic chess, qualifying would be a formality.
