Oleksandr Sulypa about the championship

Ukrainian chess grandmaster Oleksandr Sulypa, member of the EUSA Technical Delegate is very glad to see the EUSA chess championship coming to Hungary at the end of July.


He is convinced that chess is not only a mind sport but art and science as well. It teaches a person the culture of thought and accuracy, creativity and honesty. As opposed to other sports that require physical activity, chess is a symbol of the world, because the key to the victory is in the power of the mind and not in the physical force.


He is particularly looking forward to the European Universities Bridge and Chess Championship 2019 in Budapest, an event that could not have been realised without the keen support of the EUSA and the Organising Committee.


To quote his words on the championship, 'I wish success and good games to all the participants and I am sure they will leave Budapest with the best memories of Hungarian hospitality!’
