Each year, the ski races on the Hahnenkamm in Kitzbuhel, Austria, are the specialities of the alpine winter sports season.

This year too, for the international celebrities who have come to Kitzbuhel, the downhill race on the “Streif”, the most challenging event in the Audi FIS Ski World Cup, is a special attraction.

On January 22, in the presence of some 350 invited guests, the spectacular weekend of racing was opened with the celebration of “Audi Night”.

While Audi welcomed models Irina Shayk and Lena Gercke, actors Noomi Rapace and Luke Evans, and singer Christina Sturmer, for American actors Gwyneth Paltrow and Jason Statham, a visit to the “Audi Night” was their first appearance in Kitzbuhel.

And while professional skiers Felix Neureuther and Marcel Hirscher put guests in the mood for the upcoming sporting events, Audi provided a glimpse of the automobile future with a demonstration of its all-electric-powered e-tron quattro concept.

BERLIN, GERMANY — October 12, 2015 — Magnus Carlsen reasserted his dominance over the chess world today by winning the World Rapid Chess Championship here in Berlin.

The championship was organized by the World Chess Federation (FIDE) and Agon Limited, its commercial partner.

Each day, hundreds of spectators crowded into the playing hall to watch the games, and hundreds of thousands of people watched live video and streaming of the games.

The tournament had 15 rounds over three days and included nearly 160 grandmasters from 47 countries. Carlsen, a Norwegian, who is the reigning champion at regulation time controls, won the rapid championship last year as well. He thus became the first player to ever win back-to-back rapid championships.

Three players finished one point behind Carlsen: Ian Nepomniachtchi of Russia, Leinier Dominguez Perez of Cuba and Teimour Radjabov of Azerbaijan.

Two pre-tournament favorites, Viswanathan Anand of India, a former rapid champion, and Maxime Vachier-Lagrave of France, had difficult starts, scoring just 2.5 points out of 5 in the first day. Mr. Anand, who is widely known as Vishy, lost to Daniil Dubov and Pavel Pankratov of Russia in the final 2 rounds of the day.

Following is the List of Players who competed in the World Chess Rapid Championship 2015:

World Blitz Chess Championships

The 21-round World Blitz Chess Championships will be held Tuesday and Wednesday (October 13 & 14). Carlsen is the defending champion in that discipline as well. When reports last came in, French Grandmaster, Vachier-Lagrave Maxime, was leading with 9.5 points after Round 11.

UPDATE

Alexander Grischuk of Russia is the 2015 World Blitz Champion.

October 14, 2015 — Today the 5-day World Chess Rapid and Blitz Championships concluded in Berlin, with Russian grandmaster Alexander Grischuk claiming the World Blitz Champion’s title.

The winner scored 15.5 points in the 21-round tournament.

Alexander Grischuk becomes the first three-time Blitz World Champion. He previously won the titles in 2006 and 2012.
