Zimbabwe’s Newest Women Candidate Masters!…..Enter WCM Rumbidzai Mawire and WCM Hazel Refiloe Mudodo…! Congrats Young Zim Golden Girls..! They played the best games of their lives to clinch Silver and Gold respectively in the U11 Girls Section of The African Schools Chess Championships 2016 in Lusaka Zambia. The event ended yesterday Saturday. Refiloe had an incredible unbeaten run of 8 games and drew the 9th and last one.
Rumbidzai whose very early chess years were mentored in the Knights Academy stable finished at 7.5/9 only losing to her fellow compatriot and friend Refiloe and had a truce in the last round. The two girl Zim chess mozarts dismissed tough competition from other African girl stars from Botswana, Zambia, South Africa and other youth chess powerhouses. Well done girls!
