1st World Student Oza

7th-8th January 2003

Sponsored by Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Inc

In January 2003 the Nikkei Newspaper sponsored the first World Student Oza in Tokyo. The match was held at the Nihon Kiin's Yaesu branch near Tokyo station. 16 students were invited to take part, both male and female. As well as Asian countries, Europe got to send three players and North and South American one player each. As expected the Chinese players dominated the event.
