Last Report on Turin, Olimpiad

Sorry for late updates!

Ok, after gruelling hours of battle, Malaysia men finally say goodbye at Turin at placed 80th with 25.5 points. After the lost of 0-4 to Italy A. Bad ending to our men, but praised should be given to them since they do caused several upsets in the olimpiad. Mean while our men lost, our women were impressively perform well in the final round beating Iraq 3-0, kudos to them!

In the general section, witness, Armenia securing gold medal when they drew with Hungary in the final round, while China capturing silver (what a stunning performance) and USA (unexpectedly) were placed third!

In the Women section, Ukraine won the gold medal, Russia with silver medal and China with Bronze medal.

Although my hero (kramnik) team didn't brought back any medal at all, brought at least he himself did get rewarded for best performance rating awards. Congratulations!
