Norway is allowed 3 teams? Someone please explain.
The host country is allowed multiple teams
What teams? Hosting wha?
The 41st Chess Olympiad was officially opened on Friday evening at the Skarphallen in Tromsø, Norway.
That seems a little unfair?
It is already an established practice to field multiple teams in the Olympiads.
Turkey 2012. Respective standings of the teams: 42nd, 48th and 151st.
Russia 2010. Standings : 2nd, 6th and 13th.
Germany 2008. Standings: 13th, 25th and 42nd.
You can consult www.olimpbase.org for other instances.
As to whether it is fair or not. There is a chance that these friendly teams throw points to one another according to needs unless there are rules to prevent such "favourable" pairings .
