TTFA President Raymond Tim Kee showered praise
on T&T head coach Stephen Hart for the manner in
which he has led the national senior team since June
also commending the technical staff for its support
towards the team.
T&T defeated Saudi Arabia 3-1 to take third place
in the OSN Cup on Monday.
It was Hart s second win in six matches and under
him the team has scored ten goals in six games, con-
ceding ten. Skipper Kenwyne Jones has also found the
net five times in regular time play.
"I want to be as objective as I can and I will say
that Mr Hart has performed beyond what I expected
in such a short space of time. The way he has been
able to just fall in and take the thing forward is not
usual. I must commend him for the way he has led
the team and the work he has done.
"I have not only observed his coaching sessions but
his sessions off the field with his players and I can
say safely that the body language and the comments
coming from the players suggest that they love him
as much as he does because I have seen a demonstration
of complete respect for him and that augers well."
Tim Kee praises
Joshua Johnson, junior chess
champion, has taken the lead in
the current finals of the national
chess championship with three
victories in the first three rounds.
In the process, the 14-year-old
Fatima College student scored a
significant upset by defeating
defending champion FM Frank
Yee and scoring noteworthy vic-
tories against FM Mario Merritt
and talented youngster Kevin
Cupid. By overcoming this for-
midable opposition so early in
the tournament, Johnson has
made himself a clear favourite
to take the title this year. If he
succeeds, Johnson will make
T&T chess history by being the
youngest player to hold both the
junior and open titles.
With eight more rounds to go,
however, the round-robin contest
is far from over. While Johnson
has taken the lead, he is not alone
in that position. He shares it with
Adrian Winter Atwell who also
has a perfect score after the third
round, thus setting up within the
tournament an interesting duel
between himself and the junior
Three former national cham-
pions are in second place, one
point behind the two leaders. Six
time titlist FM Ryan Harper was
beaten by the champion, Marcus
Joseph went under to Kevin Cupid
and veteran Cecil Lee conceded
draws to Merritt and Yee.
Merritt and Yee are both on
one and a half points, still within
striking distance of the leaders.
The race to the 2013 national
open chess championship has
thus opened with a number of
surprises, setting the stage for an
exciting finish. The tournament
continues this weekend at the
Hasely Crawford Stadium.
The Women s Open has
opened without any surprises.
Champion Aditi Soondarsingh
shares the lead on two points with
other leading players, Javanna
Smith, Gabriella Johnson and
The national championship
contests carry an extra significance
as their results will provide the
men and women s teams to rep-
resent the country in the next
Olympiad to be held in Norway
