South Africans well ranked in Checkers!

Standings as received from the WCDF
The World Checkers Draughts Federation (WCDF) has just released the standings for the World Cup.

Of course all the usual faces are there, and the men's section is dominated by the Italian players.

Well done to Sergio Scarpetta for winning the title!

However, South Africa did do well,

In the men's section, South Africa has no less than three players in the top twenty.

The highest placed South African, is none other than SA National Champion, Francois Mouton from Tuks Mindsports Club.

Lubabalo Kondlo, is just behind Francois, and it will be interesting to see if Lubabalo takes on Francois directly.

In the women's section, Sharné Nortjé fought her way into third place with Lucille Brown and Sonja Brown finishing in 6th and 10th places respectively.

Sharné Nortjé also represents the Tuks university Mindsports Club.

Needless to say MSSA is very proud of all its checkers players.
