Vietnamese chess player Vo Thi Kim Phung won a silver medal in the women’s category of the Asian Junior U20 Chess Tournament 2012, which was held in Tashkent, Uzbekistan from May 29 to June 9.
After nine rounds, Kim Phung and India’s Pujari Rucha had both secured 6.5 points but the Vietnamese chess master earned the silver medal thanks to her better difference in other indications.
Indian chess player Ivana Maria Furtado won the gold medal with a total of 7.5 points, while another Vietnamese player, Hoang Thi Nhu Y, came in at fourth place with 6 points.
This is Kim Phung’s second medal for this tournament after being crowned champion in 2010.
