The FIDE World Junior Rapid Chess Championship came to an end, but it left a lasting impression. The exhilarating journey climaxed on the final day as Raunak Sadhwani and Govhar Beydullayeva emerged as the undisputed champions of their open and girls sections, respectively.

In the Open section, Raunak Sadhwani, the rising star from India, showcased prowess and unyielding determination and secured a remarkable victory, scoring 8.5/11. After a shaky start, Raunak picked up steam and came into the final round, sharing the top position with three players.

The Indian GM pulled off a crucial victory over Tobias Koelle (who was leading the race for most of the event) and clinched the title as two other co-leaders, Arseniy Nesterov and Dimitris Alexakis, drew their game and tied for second place with Or Globus.

Nesterov claimed silver thanks to superior tiebreaks and became the only unbeaten player in the open section; Alexakis took bronze.

In the girls’ section, Govhar Beydullayeva of Azerbaijan proved her mettle by winning the title with an even more impressive score of 9/11. Sardinia seems to have a special victorious vibe for Govhar as she won her second title here after her triumph at the 2022 World Junior Championship in this Mediterranean island.
