Only four months after the Chess Olympiad in Tromso where the greatest chess players of the world competed against each other it is already time to have a look at the best talents of the next generation. In December this year Hungary may organize a Chess Olympiad for the first time, the competition for youth aged under 16 years. The
​e​vent takes place in the city of Győr and with more than a month ​to​ the start the organizers have already confirmed the entries of more participant nations than ever before at any Youth Chess Olympiad. It really seems that the best chess talents of all five continents will be present in Hungary between 12th-22nd December. Awarding the right of organization to Hungary is a clear sign of high international recognition of chess life in the country which is rightly confirmed by the fact that Judit Polgar (who has been leading the FIDE world women's rankings for more than 25 years) has agreed to be the face of the event representing talent and the Hungarian chess traditions all in one person or we could even say legend. By mentioning Judit Polgar let us not forget that after FIDE tightened on a rule that had existed earlier. Participation of girls is now guaranteed. In each team a maximum four of the five team members can be a boy.
 

The promo video ​of the Youth Chess Olympiad 2014 ​features Judit Polgar, Csaba Balogh,​Olympic Silver medalist, ​Benjamin Gledura who was European Champion of his age group and Kata Karacsonyi who was the first to follow in the footsteps of Judit Polgar to win the National Championship, topping all boys in their age groups.
