2nd World Mind Sports Games has Ended

With the closing ceremony on the Thursday evening, 23rd August, the second WMSG ended.

Congratulations to the young Go team from Chinese Taipei who won 11 medals (4 gold, 4 silver and 3 bronze). Well done also to Japan for their gold and silver, and to Canada and Singapore who each got a bronze.

Thanks go to all who supported the event, especially to all the EGF organisers who worked so hard to ensure the Go ran smoothly, but
also to the sponsors and the main event team.
