World Youth Update: Wang Tied for Lead After Four

After four rounds of the World Youth in Khanty-Mansiysk, Russia, the US squad has several players toward the top of the crosstables, including Annie Wang in the Girls Under 14 (see one of her victories below) and Gabriel Sam in the Open Under 14. Wang will play Elizaveta Solozhenkina, the top seed on board one tomorrow.
