Albania refused to play against Israel and withdrew after 11 rounds. The Belgian team did well in the preliminary, but had a disappointing run in the B final, ending on a 30th place out of 62 teams. After the previous olimpiad, Boey managed another IM-norm (Perf: 2482) on first board. He and Cornelis missed the last 6 respectively 7 rounds of the B-final which might explain the lesser results of the Belgian team. This was the first olimpiad with Elo-ratings. Here are the round-by-round results.
