Trinidad & Tobago claimed 2 Gold medals in Chess, at the 2014 CARIFTA Games in Martinique.
Shannon Yearwood, former U12 National Champion, showed her talent as she cruised to the Gold Medal position in the U16 girls tournament with a game to spare. Meanwhile U14 T&T champion, Isaiah Mc Intosh, playing in the U16 boys, charged his way into joint second (but placed 4th on tie break). Mc Intosh had a chance to claim 1st place but lost to Bajan star, Allon Richards, in the very last round.
In the U12 boys, CM Sean Yearwood blazed a trail to claim Trinidad & Tobago’s second Gold. Sean who is soon to write SEA examinations, followed in his sister’s footsteps to make our country proud.
