THE Fiji Chess Federation is looking forward to a significant growth in their sport following a successful Trainers' Seminar last week.

Federation president Dr Virgilio de Asa said 25 participants were involved in the World Chess Federation (FIDE) organised seminar.

He said 19 titles were awarded after the completion of the two-day seminar at the Holiday Inn in Suva.

"19 Titles were awarded — three FIDE Instructors (FI), eight National Instructors (NI), eight Development Instructors (DI)," he said.

"It is pleasing to note that three players — Candidate Master (CM) Manoj Kumar, John Caldeira of Rakiraki and IA Dr Jashint Maharaj obtained FIDE Instructor titles, with the rest obtaining National Instructors and Developmental Instructors titles from FIDE."

Previously Fiji had only two trainers — CM Calvin Prasad (FI) and Gloria Sukhu (NI).

"The accreditation enables Fiji Chess to improve the skills of our players, and raise the level of competitive chess in Fiji," said Prasad.
