Chennai, October 25
The Indian women’s team claimed a 6-2 win over Indonesia to win the gold but the men’s side settled for the silver after losing to Australia of the Asian Nations (Regions) Online chess championship here today.
India had won the gold in the FIDE Online Olympiad in August and the victory by the women’s team sans top players such as Koneru Humpy and D Harika is another boost to the game in the country.
The men, however, went down 3.5-4.5 in the final after losing the first match 1.5-2.5 and sharing honours in the second duel 2-2. — PTI
