Armenia: the cleverest nation on earth

BBC news agency wrote an article and made a report about the Armenian victory at World Chess Olympiad.

“Armenia – a tiny, poor country of around three million people – has won the chess Olympics twice in a row.

In so doing, it has triumphed over giants like Russia, China and the US.

Chess is pursued fanatically in many parts of the world, but nowhere more so than Armenia, where its over-the-board stars have become national celebrities.

But how has little Armenia created a nation of chess geniuses – is there something in the water? Assignment investigates”, BBC writes. The report is available here.
