With a Norwegian as the present World Chess Champion, it is natural to ask why this did not happen in Sweden as logic would dictate. Swedish presence in international chess is lower than Norway or Denmark. Its a complete disgrace.

I don't think chess is an indicator for any other performance. It's just chess. Maybe if you say IQ it will be different. Higher IQ people might plays better chess if they actually learn about it.

Zago, are you saying Swedes are more intelligent than Norwegians? The general feeling in Scandinavia is the opposite.
That something is wrong with Swedes is clear even from their disgraceful performance in the winter olympics in Sochi. Sweden is completely blotted out and is in position 15. China, Korea, Belorus, Poland are all very far ahead of Sweden. Sweden does not even one gold medal. A complete disgrace. Norway is second with 7 gold medals behind Germany which has 8.

Hahaha so what?! That swedes should be less intelligent than the rest of Scandinavia is probably one of the most naive and stupid things i've ever heard. They are better than Norway and Denmark in just everything. Winter Olympic sports like skiing and stuff is off course ones they should be better in... But hey, skiing is like the smallest sports in the world so nobody cares. In anything else they completely piss on their brother's. Before I moved to norway I knew about turbonegro, thats it. Denmark - Carlsberg, thats it. Im personally from Portugal, but I know a lot more things, companies, sportsmen, artists etc from Sweden.

And btw that norwegian chess dude is like autistic, so he is not an prototype in any ways.

Did he really said that? No! Your extremely poor analysis tells me you are either very young or beyond stupid.
It smells envy here. You are probably norwegian. We britts think its quite funny how you old norse's think think of yourselfs. If you you mention one really good thing from your country, I've would be surprised!
