  wordfunph: participated again in Chess Olympiad after 34 years..

<FM Jan Rooze of Belgium, 63, was last seen at the Olympiads twice before: in 1968 and 1976. The 34-year gap between two consecutive appearances makes it all-time record.>

  Stonehenge: He will become an IM at age 67:

  perfidious: Even older than Walter Shipman, who managed to gain the title as a stripling of 53.

  Penguincw: Congrats to Jan Rooze for finishing in <1st> at the European 65+ Championships. He actually finished in a tie with 2nd seed Viktor Kupreichik, but edged him slightly on tiebreaks (2245-2234). Both finished with 7.5/9.
