Key Highlights of the 14th IBCA Chess Olympiad 2012
International tournaments organized by AICFB
Both these tournaments were a huge success, but getting these tournaments in India was not easy. The success of IWCCB not only proved India’s capabilities but also sets the benchmark. IBCA president officially quoted “Goa world chess championship was best organized event in the history of blind chess”. This strengthened our claim for Chess Olympiad 2012 and ultimately world’s biggest chess event “Chess Olympiad” was granted to India in 2008 IBCA board meeting.
After successfully conducting the 11th Individual World Chess Championship for the blind 2006 in Goa, International Braille Chess Association (IBCA) congress awarded this event to India unanimously.
