Uzbekistan, Armenia, India II

None of the top ten seated men teams managed to win a medal at the Chess Olympiad in Mamallapuram. Uzbekistan, seated 14th and host of the 2026 Chess Olympiad, wins gold ahead of Armenia, seated 12th, and India II, seated 11th. 16-year old Gukesh blundered a possible gold for the host’s junior squad in the penultimate round against Abdusattorov but still claimed the best result on board one ahead of the 17-year old Uzbek. The Women Chess Olympiad was won by Ukraine ahead of Georgia and India, who had led throughout but lost their last match against the US.
