9-Year-Old Bodhana Sivanandan Among Youngest Ever To Score WIM Norm
Sivanandan, who turned nine only last month, has already made headlines over the last year as one of the world's greatest prospects with performances that are almost unprecedented in chess history. In Greece, her remarkable rise continued.

The schoolgirl from London scored the best result of her career, earning her first woman's international master title norm. According to Chess.com's unofficial research, she is likely the youngest player to ever score such a norm.

Two more norms, and a rating of at least 2200, are required to secure the title. With her performance in Greece, she is on track to become the youngest to ever achieve the WIM title. The record is held by GM Zhansaya Abdumalik who achieved the title at 11 years and 5 months in 2011.
