Young Rahman makes history

posted on 28/08/2004: 1634 views



The victorious UAE junior squad, led by quadruple gold medallist Salem Abdul Rahman, returned yesterday from the Arab Junior Chess Championships which concluded on Thursday in Doha. Eleven-year-old Abdul Rahman made history when he clinched his fourth successive gold to put the icing on the cake for the UAE, who also won two silver medals in the boys and girls categories.



Also collecting further accolades were two girl players who bagged their FIDE Master titles. The UAE squad was welcomed at the Dubai International Airport by Abdul Rahman Al Shamsi, president of the UAE Chess Association (UAE CA) and board member Abdullah Al Amiri.



Abdul Rahman was the toast at the short but poignant celebrations held at the airport's Ahlan Hall yesterday. The gold medal was his fourth in as many years in this competition. Abdul Rahman won the under-10 Arab title from 2001 to 2003, and this year added the under-12 crown to his collection. He earned his FIDE Master title when he was barely eight years old.
