Indian Siblings R Vaishali and R Praggnanandhaa Created a History.

In a groundbreaking achievement, R Vaishali and R Praggnanandhaa etched their names in chess history as the world’s first brother-sister Grandmaster duo. The historic moment unfolded when 22-year-old Vaishali crossed the 2500 FIDE rating points threshold at the IV El Llobregat Open in Spain, securing the prestigious Grandmaster title. This accomplishment adds to the family’s chess legacy, as Vaishali’s younger brother, Praggnanandhaa, had already earned the Grandmaster title in 2018 at the remarkably young age of 12.

The siblings’ remarkable feat not only underscores their individual prowess in the chess world but also marks a significant milestone for India in the realm of chess. The nation has consistently produced exceptional talents, and Vaishali and Praggnanandhaa’s achievements further contribute to India’s prominence on the global chess stage. Their success serves as an inspiration for aspiring chess enthusiasts, highlighting the potential for excellence within familial bonds and reaffirming India’s standing as a powerhouse in the world of chess.
