Chess Event Description
Haifa Olympiad (Men) (1976)

The 22nd Chess Olympiad took place between October 26 and November 10, 1976, in Haifa, Israel. For the first time, the event comprised both an open and a women's tournament.

International politics affected the event, as a large number of FIDE member nations withdrew in protest against the Olympiad being held in Israel. In the absence of the Soviet Union, Yugoslavia, and Hungary, the US team had the highest average Elo rating and had to be considered the favorite, even without Bobby Fischer. In the end, the USA took the gold medals, by half a point. The Netherlands and England took home the silver and bronze, respectively.(1)
