The atmosphere of competitions is saddened by scandals over elections of the head of FIDE of the Photo: DPA/TASS B Batumi starts the 42nd World Olympic Games on chess. It will last till October 5. Russians should battle against the strongest chess players from the USA, Ukraine, India and China — these combined experts consider one of favourites of a competition. It is necessary to the Russian national team hardly, experts consider. On the last tournament of 2016 our compatriots have taken only the third place. The grand master Sergey Shipov:sergey Shipov the grand master, the chess expert "As usual has told about chances of the Russian chess players of Business FM, we go behind medals. This time a little situation not such iridescent, as earlier. Perhaps, it is the first Olympic Games in the history where the team of Russia objectively by professional criteria isn't the main favourite. We were tired to wait of our gold team. Since 2002 this "gold" is absent, but now such period when our men's national team is in process of reorganization, our star veterans gradually give in, I mean Kramnik, Svidler, Grishchuk. Now only Kramnik remained in team, at the same time he has certain problems, and Grishchuk and Svidler are absent in collective, and the youth hasn't reached such level yet unambiguously to shine against the background of other chess players of the world.

We have elections to FIDE of times in four years, the Chess Olympiad — every two years, respectively, every other time such Olympic Games with elections, and every other time — without elections. Without elections the situation is usually quieter. As for our expectations, the competition now is higher and higher every year, and there are new, teams amplify. And now very strong national team of the USA which naturalized three very strong players who have passed under the American federation. It is one of the leading teams of the world now, they have won the last Olympic Games. China, Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Armenia are traditionally strong. India this year will be very strong because Vishvanatan Anand has this time agreed to play for the national team
