In India, on the other side of the world, ten chess players Peruvians proudly carry the Peruvian flag in the forty-fourth Chess Olympiad Chennai 2022. Our team has been adding encouraging results in the championship that began on July 28 and will be played until the 10th of this month.


“The best start in an Olympiad in the entire history of Peruvian chess, both with 4 wins in 5 rounds”, This was reported by the Peruvian Sports Chess Federation after the first national victories. The national team divided between the absolute team and the women’s team is made up of Deysi Cori, Paula Paredes, Mitzy Caballero, Ann Chumpitaz, Kate Bravo, Emilio Córdova, Deyvi Vera, Brian Escalante, Cristian Cruz and Renato Terry.

Facing the most difficult opponents, the women’s team defeated the United States in a big round by 2.5 out of 1.5. For its part, the men’s team also won against Croatia. “My teammates and I are giving 100% in each game”, says Emilio Córdova, one of the most famous national chess players, in a stop to the competition.

In this way, Peru says present in the Olympiad and is placed as the first Spanish-speaking team in the contest. Our country is in position 13 in the general table, after having played the first six rounds. “It is something historic, we had never achieved such good results until this round”, Córdova tells us.

At the men’s level we have defeated Bahrain, Zimbabwe, Venezuela, Andorra and Croatia. We only had a setback against Guatemala.

Today, the men’s team will face Uzbekistan, one of the great powers of world chess where the current rapid champion is. “On paper they are favourites, but we will see how it goes game by game”, Cordova says. He also adds that he doesn’t like to think about forecasts, but rather he prefers to concentrate on the game and have fun on the board.


It should be noted that at the women’s level, we have beaten Barbados, Albania, Costa Rica and the United States and now comes Malaysia. With games still ahead, our national teams will seek to continue making history in this emblematic world competition. Beyond the fact that at the leadership level, chess is still seen as an amateur sport, our chess players show that they can measure themselves face to face with the great powers of chess.
