Congratulate Vishy Anand
October 29, 2008
Viswanathan Anand added another feather to his cap when he successfully defended his World Chess title in Bonn on Wednesday night.
In winning his latest crown Anand became the first champion in the history of the game to win the World Championship in all possible formats -- a feat even the now-retired Garry Kasparov [Images] cannot boast of, since he stayed away from the knock-out World Championships.
For the record, the 38-year-old Anand, who slipped out of the FIDE's top three after more than a decade in the latest rankings earlier this month, won the knock-out World Championship in 2001 and the World Championship match tournament in 2007.
Join us in congratulating the king of the 64-squares arena.
