Tony AtkinsEuropean Youth Go ChampionshipsGrenoble18 February 2017 – 20 February 2017The 22nd European Youth Go Championships were held this year in the alpine University town of Grenoble in France, with an impressive 229 entrants.The UK team of 10 was co-ordinated by the British Go Association (BGA), accompanied throughout by the designated UK Team Leader, Martin Harvey from Manchester, and ably assisted by parents of 6 of the children.Kindly sponsored by DeepMind (whose logo looked great on the smart, team hoodies they provided, as in the picture), the UK team faced players from 17 European countries, from as far away as Ukraine and Russia.The event was run in three age groups and our players were generally towards the younger end of each group. Despite this handicap, there were many creditable performances.In the age group for Under-12s, our youngest team member, 7-year-old George Han from Bexley (see the picture), finished high up, in 15th place out of the 92 in the group.
