The trio of a 12-year-old and two teenagers complemented by Ildiko Madl will however have to overcome a Soviet women's team that has come to regard the gold medal as its rightful property. As Judit and Zsofia demonstrated at the Duncan Lawrie Mixed Pairs in London they are a match for any woman and most men on the board. They should, with a little luck, strike gold.  More MoreChess Home+Away Bookworm Headlines
