Zhuo Ren Scores IM Norm

Lim Zhuo Ren secured a 13-game IM norm with a win over Thailand's Uaychai in the final round of the 2012 Istanbul Olympiad. Zhuo Ren's last round win resulted in a 9-round performance rating of 2508, well above the 2450 requirement for the IM Norm. He finished with 6 straight wins, which must be another record of sorts by a Malaysian at the Olympiads. Notwithstanding the 6-win streak, the most notable result must still be his draw against 2630-rated Dutch GM Daniel Stellwagen in the first round.

Congratulations to Zhuo Ren.
