Magnus has been a champion at rapid chess (too) for a few years.

Don't these sites believe in crosstables?

Winners are grinners!

I didn't realise that Carlsen isn't #1 in rapid ratings (Caurana is).

I guess they need to hold World Allegro Championships (hopefully at MCC - the world capital of Allegro chess), then Magnus can add yet another crown.
