Just heard the news! Chess is one of the sports included in MSSM calendar this year (all 24 sports will be in the calendar)! Announcement was made by Dato' Seri Muhyiddin Yassin - the deputy Prime Minister and also the Minister of Education on Buletin Utama TV3 today!
I hope what I am hearing is correct and this is definitely is the good news! Hopefully other bloggers and the MSSM people can verify this soonest! (yeay!)
