THE FIRST NATIONAL AL-KAFAAT CHESS CHAMPIONSHIP

The Academic School of Al-Kafaàt, Notre Dame de Kafaàt (NDK) organized this weekend the first national Al-Kafaàt Championship for students under 18 years old, in partnership with the Lebanese Federation of Chess.

More than 200 students from the greater Beirut area took part in this refined competition, and flocked to the premises of NDK, in Hadath.

Each age category had a winner, but the greatest winner was little Mahmoud Badih, 8 years old, who not only won the gold medal in his age group, but also won the Championship’s big prize: a trip to Russia for two people, courtesy of the Al-Kafaàt Foundation.
