Bajan girls sweep Swaziland
It was the turn of Barbados’ women to complete a clean sweep at the 43rd Chess Olympiad in Batumi, Georgia on Wednesday.
The Bajan girls blanked Swaziland 4-0 in the third round of games following crushing losses against Switzerland and Chinese Taipei in their first two games at the Sport Palace.
And despite the Open team losing 3.5-0.5 to a powerful Latvia side, Martyn Del Castilho achieved the distinction of earning a draw against a Grandmaster.
Lining up with Julissa Figueroa on Board 1, Katrina Blackman on Board 2, Vanessa Greenidge on Board 3 and Donna Murray on Board 4, Barbados’ women, ranked 113th out of 151 teams, outplayed a Swaziland ranked at No. 133. (BCF)
