Polgar happy 1

In the past week the Chessdom team with the help of many contributors have been trying to collect information about the teams participants in the Chess Olympiad in Dresden 2008. Until now many teams from all continents have been listed, with Russia having a team over 2750.

However, the breaking news about the Olympiad comes from Hungary. Peter Leko and Judith Polgar will lead the Hungarian Olympic Chess team for Dresden 2008! They will be joined by our good friend Csaba Balogh, as well as Zoltan Almasi and Ferenc Berkes.

The women team is almost complete as well. For now we know it will be led by GM Trang Hoang (currently playing in Nalchik), IM Szidonia Vajda, IM Ildiko Madl, and they will be joined by WGM Anna Rudolf, who just won the Hungarian Women Championship and converted her Olympic dream.
