Record haul for chess at Paralympics

Our Malaysian chess players took home eight golds, four silvers and four bronze at the Asean Para Games chess competition in Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur. Philippines only managed a total of nine medals while Indonesia have five.

I think this is the only chess event where we can actually do better than our neighbours. In regular chess competitions we will be no match for Philippines, Indonesia and Vietnam where these countries have numerous GMs and IMs compare to our total of only four IMs.
