    Hi Bill, so this is supposed to be the next Olympiad after the one in Moscow 2021?

    Looks like they are calling for new expressions of interest if the Minsk people keep on lagging.

    In the Events Commission meeting just on FIDE President Arkady Dvorkovich has said that it is almost inevitable that the 2021 and 2022 Olympiads will be cut down to one to be held in Moscow in 2022. (Moscow 2021 is affected by COVID and Minsk 2022 by issues with organisation and the government there.)

    What are the proposed dates for the 2022 Olympiad in Moscow? I can not seem to find this information anywhere.

    I can't either; maybe they haven't been decided yet.

    FIDE have now announced that the Moscow 2022 plan is going ahead in place of the intended 2021 and 2022 Olympiads. I have retitled threads accordingly.

    Just tried a general word search to see if any website would mention a date for the 2022 Olympiad. Plenty of articles, no dates.

    I wonder if the situation with Russia and the Ukraine might make this event problematic to go ahead.

    This is the only thread I can see on the Olympiad so I will post here even though the Olympiad is no longer in Moscow.

    Hopefully this does not affect the Olympiad in Chennai

    Overall it seems like USA should win the open easily, the womens top 3 of India, Ukraine and Georgia look quite close.

    Best of news so far is that the Russian teams are not participating.

    Yes, that is the right decision.

    Disappointing China are not sending teams, in the womens they probably would be favourites.

    MVL and Firouzja not playing for France is a bit disappointing.

    Armenia is nowhere near as strong as they used to be as well
