Two items that may be of interest.

 

Red Bull has begun to sponsor an American chess player Hikaru Nakamura.

The USA now has 3 of the top 7 players in the World. I hope the other two get sponsors like Red Bull.

The other item is that for the first time in 40 years, the USA won the Chess Olympiads (think Olympics) defeating 149 teams.

Like the 1990 USA Women's soccer team, there was no fanfare.

 

There is a petition online to get the USA Olympiad Chess team invited to the White House.
