|Oct-03-10|| ||hellopolgar: From my observation, Canada has many talented Chinese immigrants and their children have an abnormally high percentage of being successful.|
|Oct-08-10|| ||therealbenjinathan: Great performance at the Olympiad. Board 1, 7.5/11 at 16 years of age!.|
|Jul-10-11|| ||Albertan: Here is a link to a photo of her:http://media.thestar.topscms.com/im...|
|Jul-10-11|| ||Albertan: GM Mark Bluveshtein has some nice things to say about Yuangling at his blog: http://markbluvshtein.wordpress.com...|

|Aug-11-14|| ||kia0708: no photo of this pretty player on chessgames site ? :-)|
|Aug-12-14|| ||HeMateMe: man, Karpov got fat.
|Aug-12-14|| ||waustad: <hhm>I was 130lb+ through most of my 20s. Reality strikes many of us and I bear too much resemblance to Karpov now. If I make it to the Sinq Cup, maybe you'll all get to see me on the vidcam. Pudgy grey haired (what's left) guy in his mid 60s. That probably describes a fair percentage of us. I have a beard so that makes
it a little easier picking which one.|
|Aug-12-14|| ||HeMateMe: I know, it happened to me, too. I weighed 170 when I was 23, and now I'm 40 pounds heavier.|
Still, Karpov was such a waif, back in the day. He's the last guy I would think would ever get heavy.
|Mar-17-15|| ||Penguincw: Congrats to Yuanling Yuan for upsetting 8th seed Mariya Muzychuk today! The 7 higher seeds all won their game.|
|Mar-19-15|| ||Penguincw: Nice effort by Yuanling Yuan at the FIDE Women's World Chess Championship (2015). After she upset Mariya Muzychuk (Y Yuan vs M Muzychuk, 2015) in Game 1, Muzychuk came back to win the 2nd game to force a tiebreaker. Muzychuk won the 1st tiebreaker game with black, and drew an OCB ending to finish the match, eliminating the Canadian.|
Still, Yuanling Yuan gained 6.6 rating points in classical (now up to 2264). I don't think she has a rapid rating, and I doubt the rapid games count for a rapid rating, but Mariya Muzychuk is rated 2459 in rapid, so yeah...
|Sep-13-16|| ||cro777: WIM Yuanling Yuan (2205) as a member of the women's chess team represented Canada on 2nd board at the Baku Chess Olympiad (2016), accumulating 8.5 points in 10 games played.|
(Canadian 2nd and 3rd board: Yuanling Yuan and Alexandra Botez, a Yale and a Stanford student).
