New FIDE Technical Administrative Panel

FIDE has renewed the Olympiad Technical Administrative Panel (TAP). These are the newly appointed members –
Alex Holowczak, from England (CHAIRMAN)
Shaun Press, from Papua New Guinea
Sabrina de San Vicente, from Uruguay
Vladimir Fedorov, from Russia
Heinz Herzog, from Austria
This new team is formed by young and experienced professionals from three different continents. We believe that this mix will provide the versatility required for the reforms that the Chess Olympiad demands. At this stage, TAP will work towards improving the pairing and tie-break systems for this competition.
