Of course, any boxer, football player, swimmer or wrestler is a good chess player without even knowing how to play. It stands to reason, because they're so fit.

Well just being physically fit won't nescessarily make you good at any of those other sports either.  but on the same token you must have a fit, exercised and sharp mind to play speed chess.


Chess boxing is a sport.


I don’t care whether chess is a sport or not, because Magnus beating Nepo in 120+ moves gave me the same thrill as watching any sport
