A Day With Me

Let me tell you something about Magnus Carlsen.

Born and raised in Norway, his parents found he had an affinity for chess at age 5.

At age 13, he became ranked as a chess grandmaster, the second-youngest in history.

Since then, he became one of the top chess players in the world, as well as having a modeling career on the side.

On November 22, 2013, he won the World Chess Championship against the 4-year reigning champion at the age of 22. 

Today, British GQ reported that although they had a new photo feature published with 100 photos of Victoria’s Secret models on their website, more people were looking at their article about this young chess player.

There is hope for the game of chess to be cool again in the world. And it’s all thanks to Magnus Carlsen.
