Uganda: Kampala Wins Gold

Uganda's Hudson Kyagaba won gold, silver and bronze in the Cambridge Mind Sports Olympiad held at Parkside College, Cambridge May 4-6.

The haul saw Kyagaba voted the second best overall player in the Olympiad, behind UK's William Brookes and before Piers Shepperson. This was out of the 456 participants from different countries from Africa, Europe and the Caribbean.

Kyagaba, who took part in three of the 28 types of mind games at stake, was best at Uganda's traditional Mweso where he won a gold medal.

He beat two Britons Paul Smith and Brian Wernham.
