With two rounds to go in the World Cadet Championship in Santiago, Spain, the U.S. squad is in great spirits, with plenty of medal chances. Grant Oen told CLO, “Santiago started off with some terrible weather (they had to reschedule a round because of flooding) but the recent sun has brought a lot of smiles back to our team.”
The biggest smiles are for Yuvraj Chennareddy of Illinois, who has started the event with an incredible 9/9. Chennareddy is now a point and a half ahead of second place, and can clinch gold tomorrow with a victory, and in some cases, with a draw.

Other players with at least 6.5/9 and great chances to finish strong include:
U8 Girls – Evelyn Qiao 7/9 and Rachael Li 6.5/9
