TWO of Fiji's upcoming chess players performed well at the Asian Age-Group Chess Championship at Macau earlier this month.
Year 11 student Zen Borg and Jacquelyn Masilomani of Year 7 managed to win against experienced opponents from the Asian region.
The two were accompanied by Women's Candidate Master (WCM) Gloria Sukhu and she said Masilomani won a challenging match against Athisa Suphunsy of Laos, while Borg defeated Sopha Bountheung and Bouasithong Songkan also of Laos.
"Walking into their first international outing, Borg and Masilomani displayed patience and determination," she said.
"They adapted well to my coaching during one week of play and produced decent results.
I am proud of these youngsters and wish them with more success in the future."
Borg also held Xayophonh Chanthavongsa of Laos to a tie and finished with three wins and a draw.
