Hoang Bao Tram, the only player to win nine matches, took the second gold for Viet Nam in the girl’s U-14 section.

Last year, local chess players won 45 international medals. Two of these medals were won at the World Championships (Nguyen Ngoc Truong Son’s U-10 gold and Dang Bich Ngoc’s U-18 bronze).

At present, the nation has four International Grand Chess Masters (three men and one woman), eight international masters (six women and two men), and 15 players with FIDE (International Chess Association) accreditation.
