Levon Aronian: Armenian Superstar

Levon Aronian led Armenia to an astonishing three Olympiad gold medals and was for many years the clear world no. 2, so that if we never get to see him play a World Championship match he'll join the likes of Paul Keres as one of the greatest players never to play on that stage. There's still time, however, and whatever happens Levon continues to light up the chess world. FM Andrey Terekhov profiles the Armenian no. 1 in the seventh installment of the #HeritageChess campaign, supported by the Lindores Abbey Heritage Society.
