The Chess Drum was live in Istanbul with coverage of the 40th Olympiad and it was an exciting event indeed. We were on site and captured history with photos, interviews and stories to bring life to the event for those who were not there.

There were many breaking stories including “African Diaspora at ’12 Olympiad” which highlighted some of the accomplishments during the games. Recently released was the 12 interviews conducted. Photo galleries are available at The Chess Drum on Facebook page as well.
