    World's sexiest athlete? Chess champ Magnus Carlsen

    http://gfx.dagbladet.no/labrador/285...ctive/729x.jpg

    Twenty-two year old phenom Magnus Carlsen of Norway currently leads defending and five-time world champion Viswanathan Anand 4.5 to 2.5 in the world chess championship match underway in Chennai, India.

    A tip for figure skating competitions? To compensate Carlsen for the disadvantage of competing on Anand's home turf (you know how biased those home-town chess referees can be ), they gave Carlsen an extra $100,000 out of the $2,000,000 purse.

    I think game eight is going on right now. Sorry, I don't have a live feed.

    Is Chess (or Poker for that matter) really a "sport"?

    Don't say that next to this guy! He looks as if he could squash us like bugs.
