The biggest highlight of the Australia's performance so far - David Cannon's half point against Team Russia! Great to see Australian kids competitive against a chess superpower!

Australia is not doing badly there. Seeded 29th ranked 31st and we've seen before how hard it is to perform to rating in these things. Upset loss to South Africa in round 2 but since defeated higher ranked Slovenia. Two players performing above rating, two below and one more or less level.
