Poland narrowly topped the medals table at the International University Sports Federation (FISU) World University Championship Mind Sports in Antwerp as they claimed two gold from the available six in chess and bridge tournaments.

The Poles achieved their first triumph courtesy of Błażej Krawczyk, Krzysztof Cichy, Maciej Kedzierski, Kacper Kopka, Jacob Patreuha and his brother Patrick.

The sextuple triumphed in the bridge team tournament with 233.48 points to pip France's Luc Bellicaud, Constance Belloy, Thomas Guichet, Romaric Guth, Maxence Jarjaille-Fragola and Wilhelmine Schlumberger who finished on 231.71.

Felix Dormer led a German side that amassed 217.67 points to win bronze alongside Sven Farwig, Maximilian Litterst, Viktor Otto, Philipp Pabst and Jonathan Pieper.

Berat Ünver of Turkey and Serbian Mihailo Simic were victorious in the speedball pairs competition with 69.03 points.

It was a narrow win as they were closely followed by Chinese Taipei's Yu-Chih Lin and Turk Muhammed Furkan Eker on 67.95 points.

French duo Schlumberger and Guth rounded out the podium with a score of 61.77.

Alicja Śliwicka, who holds the rank of master, picked up another victory for Poland as she scored 6.5 points from nine rounds of play in the women's blitz chess event.

Her compatriot Honorata Kucharska claimed the silver medal with six points after scraping past Iranian Mobina Alinasab by half a point on a tiebreak.

German Fiona Sieber won the women's classic after also amassing 6.5 points.

The silver medal went down to a second tiebreak as Greece's Anastasia Avramidou secured a half-point advantage over Anna Kubicka of Poland.

In the men's blitz chess tournament, it was Singapore's Tin Jingyao who ended up on top.

After the nine rounds of play had concluded, he was level on 7.5 points with Poland's Igor Janik but a single score to nil in the first tiebreaker was enough to separate the two.

Iranian Arash Daghli pocketed bronze just behind with 7 points.

Daghli then prevailed in the men's classic with the same score as he swapped places with Tin while Janik had to settle for silver once more.
