TWO Ugandans made a flying start after missing the opening round of the children’s chess Olympiad in Serbia and Montenegro.

Patrick Kawuma beat a Kenyan Sopakumar Vishnand while Krishna Mukesh outwitted Zivkovic Dejan of Slovenia in round 2 on Monday.

But Gary Namanya fell to a Bulgarian, Jeremic Strahinja, in the same round.

The Ugandans’ campaign started in the second round after missing the opening round on Sunday.

The youngsters, making a debut in the eight round event, arrived at the venue after being stuck in Dubai for two days.

The team, led by coach George Zirembuzi, will be in action every day until Saturday.

The show drew 100 of the world’s top teenage brains. Other countries at the event include Russia, Germany, South Korea, Romania and Italy.
