Fiji chess debutant, Sugandha Goswami, is looking forward to her first international tournament in the Oceania Zonal Championships in Australia next month.
Goswami, who works as a hospital lab assistant at the Colonial War Memorial Hospital says she has come a long way since taking up the game as a hobby at the Fiji School of Medicine four years ago.
“When we go into international level, since it’s a zonal, we are expecting really good players from the other Pacific Islands nations as well as Australia and New Zealand. So we would definitely be expecting a tough competition so we really need to prepare well.”
Goswami will accompany Calvin Prasad, Tianata Terubea, Gloria Sukhu and Noel Adricula to the Oceania Zonal Championships in Brisbane from July 3rd-8th.
