In recent years India has all but made the Asian Youth Chess Championships its own and this year was no different by taking a total of 35 gold medals from the 68 won and staying comfortably ahead of Vietnam which had 21 gold medals from it’s total of 52.
China was in third place but far behind the top two with just 8 gold from 32 medals.
|Overall (Team + Individual)|
When combining individual and team results, 13 from the 26 countries participating were able to medal but it became 12, one less, when counting just the individual results.
Here again India is still the easy winner with 14 gold from its 33 medals and Vietnam is still second with 7 gold from winning 21 medals but third placed China is now a closer third place finisher with 5 gold from a total of 14 medals won.
