Malaysia is full of children who are doing wonderful things most adults can’t even do, despite their young age.

An example of this is a 10-year-old Malaysian girl, Punithamalar Rajashekar, just broke the world record for the fastest time to arrange a chess set while blindfolded!

Guinness World Records highlighted the young girl’s achievement, where she broke the previous record by clocking in at a jaw-dropping 45.72 seconds!

Chess 1

Chess 2

Punithamalar’s passion for chess came at the tender age of 5-years-old when she first started playing and she has since developed into an excellent player as she’s represented her school at district chess competitions and also regularly participates in nationwide tournaments.

Not to forget, she’s a registered International Chess Federation (FIDE) member.

“My dad is my coach and we play together almost every day,” Punithamalar said.

Chess 3

If she might appear familiar to you, that’s because she’s won several awards including Asia’s Outstanding Child Award of the Year 2022 to 2023, and has graced our television sets with her skills on competitions such as Malaysia’s Kids Got Talent.
