Queens of Brooklyn: The NYC Girls Dominating Youth Chess

submitted by BornWinnerNetwork on 06/28/16 1

Chess has often been regarded as a "man's game" but a group of girls from Intermediate School 318 in Brooklyn, NY - which has the best scholastic chess program in the country at any grade level - are out to change that old idea. This past year, four of the girls qualified for the 2015 World Youth Championship in Greece, two were nationally ranked as top chess players in the country, and the team has been dominating the local tournaments they've participated in. In this VICE Sports exclusive, we meet some of the members of the team to follow their journey to the U.S. Girls National Chess Championship as they prove that girls can play chess - and win.
