On the 17th of April 2024, he will embark on a mission to break the Guinness World Record for the longest chess marathon, aiming to play for 58 hours without a single defeat. However, his endeavour extends far beyond personal achievement; it is driven by a desire to empower millions of disadvantaged children across Africa through the universal language of chess.
