Unique achievement of IM Cemil Can

At the recently ended European Youth Chess Championship 2015 in Porec, young and talented Turkish International Master Cemil Can Ali Marandi (2422) won gold in category Boys U18, but this wouldn’t be a big surprise, hadn’t it crowned a whole youth career.

To be precise, Cemil Can won gold medals in 5 categories of European Youth Chess Championships!

This unique achievement of young Turkish IM certainly dragged the attention of many, and we hope his chess career will be prosperous as it was until now.
