Jeffery Xiong played his first tournament as a 7-year-old and by the age of 14 was already a grandmaster. Tipped for success by none other than Garry Kasparov, whose training camps he's been able to attend, Jeffery crossed 2600 in 2016, the same year he won the World Junior Championship with a round to spare. 

He slowed down a little for the next 2-3 years, but it seems that was just consolidation, since in 2019 he broke into the 2700 club as an 18-year-old. The 2019 World Cup was perhaps his most impressive performance to date, since he knocked Anish Giri and Jan-Krzysztof Duda out before falling to eventual winner Teimour Radjabov in the quarterfinals.
