Anand likely for Olympiad

Viswanathan Anand is likely to play at the next Chess Olympiad, to be held at Batumi, Georgia, in September. “It is very much possible that I would be playing,” he told The Hindu .

Anand has rarely played at the Olympiad, the chess equivalent of the Davis Cup, and has been vocal about the format.

With Anand in the team, India should be one of the serious contenders in the biennial event. It is currently ranked fifth in the world.
