Re: THE Country Celebration Thread

I'm now switching to Cuba. The Cuban I know best (not personally) is José Raoul Capablanca, World Chess Champion 1921-27. He was the first man to win a World Championship Match without losing a single game. It was said of his style of play that you always knew what he was going to do, but somehow found it impossible to prevent anyway.

Re: THE Country Celebration Thread

I could never learn how to play Chess And when I think of Cuba I still think of Fidel Castro

My first association with Castro is a more pleasant one. Domingos Castro is the last man ever to get away from the pack in a long-distance track championship run. World Athletics Championship 1987, 5000 metres. Nobody took him seriously, but he almost held out to the end, being caught only by one of his pursuers and securing a silver medal.

He is not Cuban, though. He is Portuguese.

And now I've changed to Sudan. Hope they won't mind it's one day late.

I'm sure they are nice, but they're not South American. They're either North American or Central American, whichever of those you prefer. If you divide the continent in two, they're in the Northern bit.
