FIJI Chess Federation vice presidents Candidate Master (CM) Calvin Prasad and CM Gloria Sukhu departed the country yesterday for Honiara in the Solomon Islands where they will be part of a Trainer's Conference.

The week-long conference will allow the two to be become the first officials from Fiji to attain the title to train others.

Prasad said they hoped to return with adequate knowledge to allow them to raise the competitive level in Fiji.

"We aim to bring back important knowledge on developing our talent using nutrition, psychology, and the technical aspects of chess," he said.

"This conference is for one week and the trip is funded by the International Chess Federation and we hope to make the best use of it."

He said upon their return they would be able to impart their knowledge on others who were capable of teaching chess.

"We plan to train the other teachers of chess using whatever we learn from the conference.

"Also in the future, we would like to send more of our players to conferences like this so that they can also get official titles as trainers."
