At the Dresden FIDE Congress, the Argentine World Championship Organizing Committee gave a successful presentation showing that San Luis was ready to welcome players and guests next month. Dr. Alberto Rodriguez Sah, Gov. of San Luis, then requested H.E. Kirsan Ilyumzhinov to consider the possibility to include Gaston Needleman, a promising 15-year-old player from Argentina, in the next World Cup. After deliberation with the FIDE Presidential Board, the FIDE President confirmed his nomination of the young prodigy.

At the American Continental Championship, which ended some days ago, the hero was clearly 15-year-old Gaston Needleman, who tied with six other players for second but was eliminated only after the tie-break tournament for six tickets to the FIDE World Cup.
