SAKK Párizs 2024: új sportág szeretne az olimpiai programba kerülni

 

A Nemzetközi Sakk Szövetség (FIDE) kampányt indított annak érdekében, hogy a sportág bekerüljön a 2024-es párizsi olimpia programjába.

A FIDE terve az, hogy rapid és villám játékidejű partikkal rendeznének tornát a játékokon. A szervezet azzal érvel, hogy a sakk globálisan népszerű, a FIDE-nek 189 tagszövetsége van és világszerte 600 millióan sakkoznak rendszeresen.

Chess, a candidate sport for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games
Chess is one of the candidate sports for becoming an additional or demonstration sport in the Paris 2024 Olympic Games. The candidates were officially presented on the 30th of January by the FIDE President Arkady Dvorkovich, with the French Chess Federation announcing details today.

Chess could be an Olympic sport in Paris 2024. This would be huge news for the chess community as it would lead to chess gaining an enormous amount of popularity and becoming much more visible to the world. It has also been an aspiration for many chess players throughout the years to reach the Olympic Games.

Chess has its own Olympiad that takes place every two years. In 1924, the first non-official chess Olympiad took place in Paris, although back then it was played individually. Three years later, the first official Chess Olympiad took place in London and would lead to chess gaining an enormous amount of popularity now that it would be more visible to the world. It has also been an aspiration throughout the years to reach the Olympic Games. Hungary was able to take home the victory. Already a tradition that has lasted 43 editions over the years, the Chess Olympiad has become a truly magnificent event. In the 2018 Olympiad in Batumi, China was the absolute winner as they won both the Open and Female sections!

If chess would become an Olympic sport, it would be true to say that the dreams and aspirations that FIDE has had for years would come true. The publicity and exposure that a sport gets from participating in the Olympic Games can barely be compared with almost any other event in the world – it would be a great opportunity! We shouldn’t set our hopes and expectations too high, though, as the competition is very big and there is still a very long process ahead.

Chess becomes a candidate to join Paris 2024 Olympic Games.

The official launch of the campaign took place on the 12th of February in Paris. FIDE President Arkady Dvorkovich and French Chess Federation President Bachar Kouatly met with the French press to promote the vision of chess as a sport. Rapid and blitz are the formats of play considered for the Paris 2024 competitions. Chess is played by millions of people every day and is also growing in France, where 67% of the members of the French Chess Federation are aged under 18 years old.

FIDE was created in Paris in 1924. Inclusion of chess in the Olympic program of Paris-2024 would be an outstanding symbolic gift for FIDE’s 100th anniversary.
