Hanoi (VNA) - Vietnamese young masters earned four silver medals at the Asian Youth Chess Championships in Uzbekistan on April 10.

Hoang Minh Hieu was second in the U10 Open’s blitz event, with seven points after nine matches. Sindarov Islombek of the hosts won the gold with 7.5 points.

In the Girls’ U12 blitz chess, Nguyen Thien Ngan won a silver medal with seven points, while her teammate Tran Dang Minh Quang finished second in the Open discipline.

The last medal went to Bach Ngoc Thuy Duong in the Girls’ U14 who earned as many points as Indian Jishitha Daghli, but she came in second due to her lower parameter.

The Vietnamese masters also earned two bronze medals in blitz chess, won by Pham Tran Gia Phuc in the U8 Open and Nguyen Quoc Hy in the U12 Open.
