Mongolia emerge as winner at the Intl Chess Championship for Prisoners

Mongolian team (seniors) emerged as the champion of the third Intercontinental Online Chess Championship for Prisoners. The event was organised by FIDE and the Cook County (Chicago, IL, USA) Sheriff’s Office.

It is the third gold medal of the Intercontinental Championship for Prisoners under Mongolia’s belt. In 2021, the country won gold in the inaugural event open competition. A year later, Mongolia came out on top in the women’s section. Mongolia’s triumph is hardly a big surprise as Mongolia has a long-standing tradition of teaching chess in prisons. Since 1956, chess tournaments have been running in all correctional units across the country.
