Wei Yi is now officially the youngest GM in the world

Wei Yi

The official website of the Reykjavik Open reported that all Wei Yi needed for his 3rd norm was for his opponent to show up in the 9th round, because even with a loss he would get the coveted 3rd norm and the GM title (since his rating is already over 2500).

Wei Yi drew his game and became the current youngest GM in the world and the 4th youngest to achieve the title in history, only behind Sergey Karjakin, Parimarjan Negi and world’s Nr.1 Magnus Carlsen.
