Magnus Carlsen is the
best in the world. He is a 21-year-old Norwegian, reigns supreme in a
sport played by 500 million people. It is chess. Many don't think of it
as a sport because nobody moves, but chess masters will tell you it can
be more brutal than boxing.
because at the championship level, the objective is not only to win, but to
demolish your opponent. That can take hours, the best players need extraordinary
endurance...so most of them are young. Magnus is the youngest number one ever.
And no one
can explain to you how he does what he does. It seems to come from another
world, which is why he has become known as the Mozart of chess.
