In 2006 at Turin, Bill Hook played for the Britsh Virgin Islands at the age of 81, making him the oldest chess player in the chess Olympiad. Hook played in his first chess Olympiad in 1968. The youngest player at Turin was Wesley So, age 14 of the Philippines.

During the event, Armenian GM Levon Aronian was punched and shoved by British GM Danny Gormally. They were fighting over Australian WIM Arianne Caoili, formerly from the Philippines, at a party organized by the Team Bermuda.
