Chess Olympiad 2011- May 21, 2011
It was a day of fun, music, imagination and chess!

Grand Master Maurice Ashley arrived this time to Belize specially for the Chess Olympiad and a lot of spectators through the whole country had a chance to hear his commentary live on TV!

Grand Master Maurice Ashley is known in Belize not only for his chess skills, but also for being a living proof that "Strong mind needs a strong body". During the week that he worked with us at Sibun, he was a great inspiration for our players and coaches.
