Gold at Pan-Am with a round to spare

I am going for complete shutout now having secured gold medal with 8 out of 8. It has been a great tournament for me. I feel all the hard work I put in my preparation is being rewarded.
Once again many thanks to all the friends and family that have supported me, encouraged and sent their wishes.
It is exciting that we are about to get more gold medals. Following are leading or in the hunt for Gold. I wish they all win tomorrow and win gold.
Annie Wang: U-8 Girls: Leading by tie-breaks. She is only 7(corrected) years and plays amazingly good.
Simone Liao: U-10 Girls: Leading by 1 point. Last year's silver medalist. I have known her longest and she will definitely win gold.
Jarod Pamatmat/ Arthur Shen: U-12 Boys: I wish for them to get Gold and Silver tomorrow.
Daniel Rozovsky: U-14 Boys: Half point behind the leader. He beat the only other 7/7 player at the tournament.
Victor Shen: U-16 Boys: Leading by tie breaks. Undefeated so far in the tournament.
Good luck to all the other US team members.
Some pictures from earlier today...

Hi Tanuj,
KUDOS! To the best of my knowledge you are the first gold medalist in any international competition from the Tri-City area. Vinay Bhat did take a gold one year and his parents live in Union City, but he lived in Cupertino the time.

I hope you get loads of publicity--you deserve it. Keep smiling--I am sure that gold smile helps you win the gold medals.
