Chess Olympic Games were scheduled to be carried out in Russian Khanty-Mansiysk in 2020. However the Covid-19 pandemic made its impact on the chess world, therefore the games were played online.
Despite the change of format all the strongest chess nations like the USA, Russia, China, India, Azerbaijan, Armenia, Ukraine, Poland and many others took part at the event. For the first time two nations — Russia and India took gold medals. It’s worth mentioning that the success of the Indian team was strongly connected with the superconsistent play of its longstanding leader — the legendary Vishwanathan Anand who successfully competed against the best players of the chess world.
