World Championship 2016


The World Champion 
Magnus Carlsen was born in Tψnsberg, Vestfold in Norway but only learned to play chess at the age of eight. He won the title of International Master in 2003 at the age of 12 years 7 months and 25 days. In 2004, he then became the second-youngest grandmaster in chess history at the time.

The Challenger
Sergey Karjakin
was born in Simferopol, Kramatorsk in Ukraine and learned to play chess when he was five years old. On 20 August 2002, at the international tournament in Sudak, he shocked the chess world by fulfilling his third and final GM norm, making him the youngest grandmaster in chess history, at the age of 12 years and 7 months (a record that still stands). At 11 years and 11 months, he had also been the youngest ever to acquire the IM title.
